ACM Search Plugin for Firefox

I’ve been “out” for the past few weeks because I was writing for my general exams. When I was preparing my materials I was using the ACM Digital Library very heavily. So much so, that I ended up producing a search plugin for the built-in search bar in Firefox. Here is a polished version of it.

Instructions are:

(1) Download these two files:

a. acm.src

b. acm.gif

(2) Save them in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins

(3) Restart Firefox.

Enjoy!

    You can optionally use
    function addEngine(name,ext,cat)
    {
    if ((typeof window.sidebar == “object”) && (typeof window.sidebar.addSearchEngine == “function”))
    {
    var url=””; #your url
    window.sidebar.addSearchEngine(
    url+name+”.src”,
    url+name+”.”+ext,
    name,cat );
    }
    else
    {
    document.write(“oops,error”);

    }
    }

    javascript:addEngine(‘title’,’image_format’,’search_category’)
