Unless the sites you want to search offer an API, you have to probably use CURL to send the request to their search form, then use a regex parser to sort out the links in the result. Or you can look into a Google custom search box.

Thank you sir for your nice suggestion I really appreciate it :-).
Start to read and learn about CURL. Any good resources that you might suggest.

WRT regex, it's not very good at sorting out html. You may be better off with an XML parser - but the underlying html does need to be well formed.

Ok.Thank you sir :-).
