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 quick start guide, but here are highlights:

16-bit and 32-bit versions are supplied together, with an interactive program tour. The 16-bit version runs under pretty much any version of DOS or 32-bit Windows; the 32-bit version runs in a DOS box (also known as command prompt) under Windows 95 through Windows 7, 32-bit or 64-bit. The 32-bit version supports long filenames, extended regexes, and national character sets.

A quick start guide (37 KB) can be viewed on line and is included in the download package. The full reference manual (almost 300 KB) is included in the download package.

How do I get GREP?

Download the program, all docs, and the interactive tour as a 381 KB ZIP file. After downloading, unzip the file in any convenient directory and read the 0README.1ST file.

This free download is intended for you to try the program. If you continue using it after your 30-day trial, you’ll want to pay for it. As an incentive, the registered version has a couple of extra features.

Need an unzip program? Two excellent choices are UNZIP by Info-ZIP (freeware) for DOS and 7-Zip (freeware, open source) for Windows.

How do I buy GREP?

GREP is shareware. Download it gratis and try it out for 30 days. Pay for it if you decide to keep using it; otherwise just delete it from your computer.
