CGREP(1) General Commands Manual CGREP(1)

NAME

cgrep - like grep(1) over all indexed files

SYNOPSIS

cgrep [-c] [-h] [-i] [-l] [-n] regexp [ file... ]

DESCRIPTION

Cgrep behaves like grep, searching for regexp, an RE2 (nearly PCRE) regular expression.
 
The -c, -h, -i, -l, and -n flags are as in grep, although note that as per Go's flag parsing convention, they cannot be combined: the option pair -i -n cannot be abbreviated to -in.

OPTIONS

-c
Suppress normal output; instead print a count of matching lines for each input file.
-h
Suppress the prefixing of file names on output.
-i
Ignore case distinctions in both the regexp and the input files.
-l
Suppress normal output; instead print the name of each input file from which output would normally have been printed.
-n
Prefix each line of output with the 1-based line number within its input file.
 
 

ENVIRONMENT

Cgrep uses the index stored in $CSEARCHINDEX or, if that variable is unset or empty, $HOME/.csearchindex.
 

SEE ALSO

cindex(1), csearch(1), grep(1).
