Windows GREP

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.

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

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

Tested: Not Portable

WinGrep
http://www.miscel.dk/programs.html has an old version of WinGrep v.1.11 from 1999 (assuming this is the app mentioned in the previous posts).
The app runs in Windows10, but I could not figure out how to make it find something ...
Note: I just archived the web page (and the programs linked in that web page) on the waybackmachine: https://web.archive.org/web/20201024183 ... grams.html

NOT portable: writes to the registry.

Just for the notes, grep binaries for Windows are available via Cygwin as well as via MSYS2. Also, a "standalone" EXE an be found in UnxUtils.

(And, as mentioned above already, BusyBox contains "grep" too. But I think BusyBox' implementation lacks the GNU extensions)

Two different programs! :D
OP WinGrep is by Huw Millington last released in 2009(?).
The one you linked is by HKJ and from 1999 as you noted.

I don't think deathcubek has been as active on the site as some other users to see some of the recent discussion around Unix->Windows tools, but I admit you could have written (and if I dig around may find examples of) the quoted text.
