Summary     : Pattern matching utilities
Description :
The GNU versions of commonly used grep utilities. Grep searches through
textual input for lines which contain a match to a specified pattern and then
prints the matching lines. GNU's grep utilities include grep, egrep and fgrep.

Update Information:

This is new version of grep that fixes several bugs. It is faster on regular expressions that match multibyte characters in brackets (such as '[áéíóú]') and no longer aborts when PCRE's backtracking limit is exceeded.
