Windows Grep

wingrep.png Don’t know what grep is? Ever heard of the linux grep command? Grep stands for global regular expression print for the sed commands in linux that allow you to search for a particular character,word,phrase within documents.
Windows never had this functionality until now. Windows Grep is the Windows version of grep. It searches html files, text files, and your usual ASCII based files. But it also does search binary files like documents, spreadsheets, and the like which makes it all the more useful. This application is shareware, but it’s definitely something useful that you might want to use when you’re searching for something on the fly and you don’t have your documents indexed with something like Google Desktop.
