I can't be the only one - I think this is a common problem.
I want a one stop shopping version of searching for python stuff. Like most
users, I don't have any specifics, just some fuzzy annoyance in my life that I
want someone else to fix. well, I'll try to give some clues.
It seems whatever python related thing I am searching for the process goes like
http://www.python.org/doc/ "Python Documentation" it has a "search box" but
looking at the html I see: <..."sitesearch" value="www.python.org"...> so it is
searching more than just the docs section.
I click on "advanced search" http://www.python.org/search and get 3 more search
boxes plus some links to other places to search. None of them let me limit the
search to docs.
http://www.python.org/dev/searchplugin/ "This will install a Python Bugs search
engine in Firefox/Mozilla's Search Bar." That is the right concept, but I want
to search docs.
Of course there are language docs, standard library docs and a variety of other
What I would like to see: a search that aggregates across all of the various
python doc searches.
Ok, I feel better now. thanks for listening.
