KX & kdb/q Search Engine Shortcut

Hey all,

In any modern browser, you can define your own search engine under settings.

One useful case here is to setup a shortcut to code.kx, so that you can type a keyword (e.g. "kx") in your browser address bar, press tab and enter a search term such as "matrix" to quickly lookup our search term:

To setup, go to your browser's setting and find the 'Manage search engines' section.

Next, add a search engine name, then a keyword that you will use to trigger the search engine and the following URL: https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Acode.kx.com+%s

For example:

Thought I'd share this tip here that may help those venturing into the world of kdb/q, or even those with a few years under their belts (I use this daily 😄)

Cheers,

David
