####################################################################
#
# This file is used to put any user defined actions on the right
# button menu. Each action consists of two lines. A button title line
# and a action specification line:
#
# Button Title
# action spec
#
# There are (currently) three ways to specify an action:
#
# Webster
# GET:http://a.site.with.webster/cgi-bin/websterquery?q=__string__
#
# Search Engine
# POST:http://a.site.with.webster/cgi-bin/websterquery q=__string__#
#
# Fetch Selection
# FETCH:__string__
#
# What GET does:
# This is for a search form that is of the GET method, clicking on the
# Webster button (in User pull_right menu) will send the selected text
# to this cgi query and Mosaic will pull up the results.
#
# What POST does:
# This is for a search form that is of the POST method, clicking on the
# "Search Engine" button (in User pull_right menu) will send the selected
# text to this cgi query and Mosaic will pull up the results.
#
# What FETCH does:
# This just treats the selection like a url and fetches it.
#
# Here is a working example (for uiuc domain only, uncomment this if you
# are in the domain and ever feel like looking up words you find surfing)
#
# Webster
# GET:http://www.uiuc.edu/cgi-bin/oed?__string__
#
# How you use it:
#
# 1) Copy this file to your home directory.
# 2) Start up Mosaic (2.7b3 or greater).
# 3) Select some text. (First or second button drag in Mosaic)
# 4) Click on third button, go down to "User" sub menu and select one.
# 5) Watch the results come flying over the net and send a message to
# mosaic-x@ncsa.uiuc.edu saying how awesome this feature is.
# We thank you for your support.
#
# One thing that might be useful to know if you have problems with this
# feature is that it you need to add quotes to a selection of more than
# one word but you can't have quotes in a url so add %22's around __string__
# in the spec line if the button is meant to accept selections of more than
# one word (see provided functions).
#
# Note: With Mosaic 2.8b1 you will be able to do construct these
# user defined actions within Mosaic via a preferences dialog.
# This will mean you don't have to rerun Mosaic if you add a new action.
# This file is a temporary thing and will be obsolete with 2.8b1
# (all though if you have this file 2.8b1 will read it and
# put it in preferences and then erase it).
