Find By Content is a new system-level search facility implemented as a Code Fragment Manager library. The Sherlock application is a client of Find By Content and uses its search facilities for performing content-based searches, both locally and on the Internet. Because each Internet search site has its own particular format for query and response information, the Sherlock application uses plug-ins that describe data formats used by these sites for formatting queries and parsing response data.
