grep 3.5 Private

Package Tool Unix Port

grep is a search program that prints lines from a text file that matching a given pattern. The program functions on one or many files and patterns may be provided as either a basic or extended regular expression, or as fixed strings. By default, the matching text is simply printed to the screen, however the output is very customizable with line numbers, log files, context, total count, and more.

It contains the following tools:

grep: match using basic regular expressions.
egrep: equivalent to `grep -E'; use extended regular expressions.
fgrep: equivalent to `grep -F'; use fixed strings, not regular expressions.

Not to be confused with grap or agrep.

I'm fairly sure grep is present in cygwin, but I don't think it includes grep -E, which was one of the reasons I started running WSL.
