google.m is a shell interface to initiate Google search and display first few results in Matlab Command Window. The function treats varargin as the query word(s) and uses regular expression to analyze the text returned by Google. One of the fun parts is you can type typos, since Google corrects spelling.
google.m keeps cache so to prevent bugging Google from the same query. It always displays cache result. Users are allowed to clear the cache.
google.m is inspired by goosh. (goosh.org)
