This class is a LookSmart specialization of WWW::Search. It handles making and interpreting LookSmart searches http://looksmart.com.
LookSmart will first display it's own internal site results from it's many categories if found there, else it will return outside results from the web. Thus, depending on the query there will be slightly two different formats returned depending on whether or not LookSmart finds them in it's own internal categories. All in all, this is a nice search engine!
LookSmart only returns 10 hits per page and there is no search options.
This class exports no public interface; all interaction should be done through the WWW::Search manpage objects.
To make new back-ends, see the WWW::Search manpage.
