Home / The Silver Searcher windows port

The Silver Searcher is a command line utility for searching text files. Like grep, but faster. It’s written in super-optimized C and gets a big speed boost by intelligently skipping files that you don’t want to search (temporary binary files created by the compiler etc.). It didn’t have a Windows version, so I’ve made one. It’s the first release so there might be rough edges. If you find them, let me know so that I can fix them.
