    The Universal Search Command Line patch is one of my favorite patches. Dsevil has made it a necessary part of my WebOS experience. I am constantly using commands such as .gc for garbage collection, .qmemo for memos, and .az for amazon searches.

    The patch allows for the creation of user-defined commands by placing a file called uscl.json in the root directory.

    My question to the community is, how do you take advantage of user-defined commands? What do your commands do? If you have something you want to tell us about, please post the code you used.

    At this point I haven't done anything with it... so I'm eagerly anticipating any ideas others have.

    I added this:

    Code:
    		"ixquick": {
    			"title": "Ixquick",
    			"usage": "<var>keywords</var>",
    			"example": "search engine privacy",
    			"description": "Search Ixquick.com",
    			"url": "https://us.ixquick.com/do/metasearch.pl?cat=web&cmd=process_search&language=english&enginecount=8&query=",
    			"noArguments": {
    				"url": "https://us.ixquick.com/"
    			}
    		},
    		"ix": "ixquick",
    ...to the sample .json file. It does a secure (https) ixquick.com search on the keywords you enter.

    Thank you! Had no clue what ixquick was... now I think I'm incorporating it into my regular life.

    Anyone have an idea of how far you can go using this uscl.json file to manipulate your phone? Is it limited to site-specific searches, or can you do other things like have it open up a specific app and modify data in it. Could I, as an example, create a .qflash command which creates a new flash card in my flash card app without opening it?

    I emailed uscl.json to pre, but it's a txt file. Will that work, tried .update then tried search but phone does not recognize my command. .pc or .pre to search precentral.net

    Hey,
    I recently discovered this patch. It's genius!

    How do I edit existing shortcuts? I'm used to have shorter ones in the FF url-field. For example
    i for imdb
    gm for google maps

    etc.

    is .gc built in? I might install it even if I only remember that for garbage collect
