I'm afraid I don't know how to do this. I assume the http server uses a
cgi which runs something to do the search, and this could probably be
run without the server. But then you might be faced with building an
non-HTML user interface, which might not be so easy. On the other hand,
if you can run it directly from R, rather than from an HTML form, it
might work with other help formats as well.

Best of luck,
