About grepArtee (MacOS X only)
The application grepArtee is a graphical user interface for the Unix
grep command lets you search any text file for patterns. The pattern can be any string of
text or can use Unix
regular expressions for sophisticated pattern matching.
You can search a single file or use standard Unix methods to specify many files (such as
*.txt). The search can be for a set of files or for all files in a set of directories. A search of directories can be extended recursively to include all subdirectories.
For example, by searching all directories with extension
mbox recursively beginning in the directory
~/Library/Mail/Mailboxes, you can
use grepArtee to quickly search all email messages stored on your computer.
