With this class you can combine various search services into one search box. 
The search and the services are defined through .ini files. Services which use POST, GET or APPEND to an url can be specified. An .ini file consists of two parts. The general desctption and the parameters block. In the general block the id must be unique. The URI and description parameter are not used for now.
In the parameters block all submitted parameters must be given. The parameter for search query has a placeholder (%s).
Examples for the three possible service types (POST => amazon.ini ,GET => google.ini , APPEND => php2.ini) are provided. 

This class requires two other classes to work, please download them:
