    Grep is originally a unix tool, it finds text as regular expressions in the input text.

    Gnu core-utils contain a bunch of Unix style small programs, including grep:
    http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/

    There are also Windows pre-compiled versions here:
    http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages.html

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

    I use gnu grep for windows for everyday tasks and PowerGrep when building large or complex expressions to add to my code.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
