I've finally learned what 'upward compatible' means. It means we get to keep all our old mistakes.

I am getting a weird error
your example code in the readme file works great in the interactive but fails when I put it in a file
this is the code -->
>>> from xgoogle.search import GoogleSearch
>>> gs = GoogleSearch("catonmat")
>>> gs.results_per_page = 25
>>> results = gs.get_results()
>>> for res in results:
... print res.title.encode('utf8')
from: can't read /var/mail/xgoogle.search
./xgoogle_mod.py: line 4: syntax error near unexpected token `('
./xgoogle_mod.py: line 4: `gs = GoogleSearch("quick and dirty")'
Whyever is it looking for /var/mail/xgoogle, when I have it loaded in dist-pkgs where the interactive imports it just fine. What am I missing?

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
