1 Searching approaches
My newly installed system would not allow me to hoogle what I wanted (no xmonad or xmonadcontrib in hoogle) so someone suggested Hayoo.
(define-key haskell-mode-map (kbd "<f3>")
(lambda () (interactive) (browse-url (format "http://holumbus.fh-wedel.de/hayoo/hayoo.html?query=%s&start" (region-or-word-at-point)))))
region-or-word-at-point is available in the thing-at-pt+.el library.
Added 22-12-2008 - Promt for hayoo word
(interactive) (let* ((default (region-or-word-at-point))
(term (read-string (format "Hayoo for the following phrase (%s): "
default)))) (let ((term (if (zerop (length term)) default term))) (browse-url (format "http://holumbus.fh-wedel.de/hayoo/hayoo.html?query=%s&start" term)))))
(define-key haskell-mode-map (kbd "<f3>") 'rgr/hayoo)
Alternatively use the excellent browse-apropos-url stuff:
Note: Using and URL like this should work too and will give better results (not yet tested as I'm not an emacs user):
