Great. :)

@webfork: it's probably high time Busybox is split from the Windows Grep thread, likely to "Resources & Links"...

Ego te absolvo, my son Image
But how about actually splitting up the bloody target topic once and for all ? (if you'll pardon my French ... :mrgreen:)

Else, that's would be akin to absolution during perpetration, and I bet your last indulgence The Holy Sea won't have any of this...;-)

Splitting up the target topic? So there's a thread for GREP, a thread for Busy Box. Was there a 3rd one?

Much obliged, thanks webfork.

As Midas suggested, perhaps the discrete new thread "Busy Box - Unix utilities in a single EXE"
would be a better fit within the "Resources & Links" forum section ?
