Publisher's description

This review applies to version 4.1. The latest version of this software will soon be reviewed by our informers.

AstroGrep is a Microsoft Windows grep utility. Grep is a UNIX command-line program which searches within files for keywords. AstroGrep supports regular expressions, versatile printing options, stores most recently used paths and has a "context" feature which is very nice for looking at source code.
Main features:

- Regular expressions

- Concurrent multiple file types

- Recursive directory ssearching

- A "context" feature that selects the lines above and below your search expression

- Most Recently Used list for search paths

- Somewhat versatile printing options

- Double click to open file with editor of your choice

- Store Most Recently Used file names and search expressions

- Match Whole Word Only

- Syntax highlighing

- Free of charge and Open Source

This is a bug fix release to re-allow 10 context lines. It also updates the Microsoft Word plugin to handle .docx files and the 'Recurse' search option has been renamed to 'Search subfolders' for the English version.
