A Unix-like grep tool with a lot of sorting methods using regular expressions to fine-tune searches (and a good help file to explain them). There are already two grep tools in the database (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=760 and http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1240), but they doesn't support Vista and this one seems a bit smoother.

I can't do a full test on the system I have set up, but looks promising. I extracted using Universal Extractor and it appears to save all settings locally (although it doesn't use a relative path name for last directory searched).

A fully-functioning evaluation version is available for download. There are no differences between this and the registered version. It does not time-expire.
(http://www.wingrep.com/download.htm)

Seems to be freeware except for a nag at program exit.

http://tools.tortoisesvn.net/... never tested for portable... don't have a thumb drive...but it is open source so easy to check....

Yeah, that looks really good. I'll check that one out as well.

I tested WinGrep and it saves settings the registry (HKCU\Software\Windows Grep.)

Tested: Not Portable

I tested GrepWin suggested by lautrepay with the commandline parameter /portable and when I opened and closed it didn't save any settings, but then when I search for something it saved history in HKCU\Software\grepWin.

Tested: Not Portable

Thanks guys for making me aware of another good program =)

There's a portable version of grepWin at PortableApps.com, in case anyone hasn't seen it.

Works pretty nicely - I just used it to get rid of all that extra data that Firefox tacks onto internet shortcuts. I wish there was an option to not include icon paths when creating them. (and those paths include your logon name!)

This is the RegEx I used for deleting that, btw (file name filter: *.url):
Code:
IDList=\v+HotKey=\d+\v+IconFile=C:\\.*\v+IconIndex=\d+\v+

Hey guys/gals, might be of interest to some that there's a Windows BusyBox binary available HERE

BusyBox applets are usually not the full versions of their counterparts (read: stripped versions) but I thought it might be useful to some.

... All of that in a 622 KB single binary! Cool. 8)

According to http://busybox.net/, latest busybox stable is v1.20.1, so getting v1.19.1 for Windows is actually great -- my guess is the corresponding code is from around August 2011, not as outdated as other versions I've seen around. For quick reference, here's the full grep 'man page'... ;)
      Code:
      BusyBox v1.19.1_18_0-306-geb28f73.git (2011-01-16 17:56:02 ICT) multi-call binary.

      Usage: grep [-HhnlLoqvsriwFEz] [-m N] [-A/B/C N] PATTERN/-e PATTERN.../-f FILE [FILE]...

      Search for PATTERN in FILEs (or stdin)

      Options:
         -H   Add 'filename:' prefix
         -h   Do not add 'filename:' prefix
         -n   Add 'line_no:' prefix
         -l   Show only names of files that match
         -L   Show only names of files that don't match
         -c   Show only count of matching lines
         -o   Show only the matching part of line
         -q   Quiet. Return 0 if PATTERN is found, 1 otherwise
         -v   Select non-matching lines
         -s   Suppress open and read errors
         -r   Recurse
         -i   Ignore case
         -w   Match whole words only
         -F   PATTERN is a literal (not regexp)
         -E   PATTERN is an extended regexp
         -z   Input is NUL terminated
         -m N   Match up to N times per file
         -A N   Print N lines of trailing context
         -B N   Print N lines of leading context
         -C N   Same as '-A N -B N'
         -e PTRN   Pattern to match
         -f FILE   Read pattern from file

And here's a great yet easy tip for running busybox commands directly:
      zcattacz wrote:
      Try this:
      Code:
      for cmd in `./busybox.exe --list` ; do
              echo '@"%~dp0busybox.exe" %~n0 %*'>${cmd}.bat ;
      done

      . Save it to busybox.sh laying besides busybox.exe;

      . Open cmd console cd into that folder run "busybox.exe sh busybox.sh";

      There you go, [you can] now try "cat busybox.sh" :)

@Midas - latest busybox stable is v1.20.2

Or... you could just rename the BB executable to it's default shell (e.g. ash.exe or sh.exe) and create a shortcut

Or... you could create a .bat file to launch BB with it's default shell:
Code:
@echo off
SET PATH=%~dp0;%PATH%
busybox.exe sh

That's a sweet little package! Unfortunately, Unicode doesn't appear to be a priority. Only the following 4 utilities are reported as being 'fixed' for unicode:
- cal
- lsmod
- df
- dumpleases

See the TODO_unicode file, which appears to be unchanged in new versions as well.

    While checking something else, I noticed that the latest version mentioned at the Busibox official webpage is v1.21.1, so this info might not be completely accurate...
