Overview

Program release 8.01 dated 9 Dec 2021

Copyright © 1986–2022 by Stan Brown, BrownMath.com

What is GREP?

GREP searches for strings or regular expressions in files. Patterned after the UNIX utility fgrep, it’s also a vastly superior replacement for the DOS utility FIND. GREP runs on the command line in all versions of Windows.

You can find full details in the GREP Quick Start Guide and GREP Reference Manual, but here are highlights:

How do I get GREP?

Download the program, all docs, and an interactive tour as a 579 KB ZIP file. After downloading, unzip the file in any convenient directory and read the 0readme.1st file.

Need an unzip program? I use and recommend 7-Zip (freeware, open source) for Windows. It also includes a command-line version.

Installation instructions and system requirements are here.
