Can I search for data using the API?

Yes.  For example, the following call returns the top 20 results for the query [crude oil], in JSON format:

https://www.quandl.com/api/v3/datasets.json?query=crude+oil
If you prefer the results in XML format, the call is:
https://www.quandl.com/api/v3/datasets.xml?query=crude+oil
You can paginate through search results using page= and per_page, like this:
https://www.quandl.com/api/v3/datasets.xml?query=crude+oil&per_page=50&page=2
Note that multiple search terms should be separated by a + character.
