AstroGrep is a search utility for quickly finding information within text files. Results are displayed with sidebar options for further filtering and preferences for text result styling. Searches using keywords and regular expressions are supported with options for printing, storing recently used paths, and opening files externally with a text editor (down to the exact line number and column, if supported by the editor).

The program is not an indexing search program, meaning it checks the contents of all files each time it searches. Based on the popular grep search used in *nix.

AstroGrep does not search for strings of characters inside binary files.
This is a major limitation of the usefulness of this application
