Publisher description for PowerGREP

PowerGREP program icon

Quickly find information in files and folders across your computer or network, even if you do not know in advance exactly what you are looking for. PowerGREP's rich Perl-compatible regular expression support allows you to search for virtually anything by specifying the form of what you want, and let PowerGREP find the actual text matching that form. PowerGREP's documentation includes a detailed regular expression tutorial, with many simple and complex examples. Search through plain text files such as source code, letters and correspondence, server or system logs, reference texts, historic archives, etc. Search through through binary files, Unicode files, UNIX and Mac text files, files stored in zip archives, Microsoft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Acrobat PDF files, etc. Don't limit yourself to getting a list of files or search matches. Extract useful information from large sets of data or heaps of documents. Distill statistics and knowledge from all kinds of log files or archives. Perform comprehensive search-and-replace operations across large numbers of files for easy maintenance or fast editing of web sites, source code, reports, etc. Preview and inspect the results of the search and replace before actually modifying files. Replace or revert individual search matches in a full-featured file editor. Stay safe with a variety of backup options. Undo changes or clean up backup files in the Undo History. Save PowerGREP actions and invoke them from the command line to automate recurring tasks. Developers can integrate PowerGREP actions and results with enterprise software through PowerGREP's open XML file formats.

Just great for searching INSIDE files, like text or data, BUT NOT searching for file names without searching inside them. Don´t understand why they do not include this simple and basic feature. You have to use windows explorer or other application to find out just if there is some FILE in your computer.

A powerful file content search utility, allowing full regular expression searches, multiple search criteria, preview of search results, preview of replace, data extraction, file sectioning and a lot more. Excellent documentation and help. This may be overkill if you just want a simple search, but a lifesaver for quick and/or complex searches. I think complaining it isn't designed to find files on the drive misses the point of its purpose. It allows multiple wildcards for files to search, and does a thorough job searching these.
