Description Author  

This class can be used to search the Internet using the Yahoo BOSS (Build your Own Search Service) Web services API.

It can send a HTTP request to the Yahoo BOSS Web services server to perform a search that can be for Web pages, images or news.

The request can limit the number of results to return per page and specify the start page.

The class decodes the results returned in JSON format and stores them in a class array variable for use of the application. The results may also be cached in a local file.
