Grep: using it with Windows

Ever need to search files for that ‘piece’ of text? If you come from a UNIX background and are now on Windows GREP is a lacking tool. I recently tested out a few GREP tools for Windows and was pleased with the results. The one I liked the most, of the few I tried, was Windows Grep.

Windows Grep is a tool for searching files for text strings that you specify. Although Windows and many other programs have file searching capabilities built-in, none can match the power and versatility of Windows Grep.”

It has all the usual nice features, regex, soundex, etc.

There’s a great article on using Grep here.
