Print paragraphs matching regular expressions

Project description

paragrep - Paragraph Grep utility

paragrep is a paragraph grep utility. It searches for a series of regular expressions in a text file (or several text files) and prints out the paragraphs containing those expressions. Normally paragrep displays a paragraph if it contains any of the expressions; this behavior can be modified by using the -a option.

By default, a paragraph is defined as a block of text delimited by an empty or blank line; this behavior can be altered with the -p option.

If no files are specified on the command line, paragrep searches standard input.

This is the third implementation of paragrep. The first implementation, in 1989, was in C. The second implementation, in 2003, was in perl. This is the latest and greatest.

For help, run with -h.
