MacGrep free download for Mac


08 November 2002

GUI front-end to grep search function.


MacGrep inherits most functionalities of the grep utility. Basically, it looks for text patterns in files. MacGrep adds the following features:
  • gui options for recursivity, case ignorance, use of regular expressions, line numbers display, line count, and not matching mode
  • menu item to save your favorite options
  • menu item to retrieve recent search roots
  • search all files of a directory when you specify one without the "recurse" option
  • full aqua interface, including sheets (yeah! :-)
  • pop up menu to select target file encoding character set
  • menu item to check for new versions (hat to test that, thanks Cocoa Dev Central)
  • french localization (hat to test that too)
The source code is available.
