Developer documentation search tool

I am new to Roku channel development, so forgive me if this is something simple I have overlooked. While I'm working through the sample channels and reading the developer documentation, I find it very difficult to find information on various functions and components. When I use the search tool to search for "makeRequest", for example, it returns zero results. What is the best way to search the reference documentation?

So that makeRequest example was not a good one, because apparently that was just a subroutine defined elsewhere that I did not notice :-/ Still, my question about how to effectively search the documentation remains valid.

A general rule of thumb for the whole internet is that you'll get better results with a raw Google search that with ANY website's internal search feature. You can use Google to search within a website domain to narrow it down.
