PRGrep 8.12

A lightweight application that allows users to perform search operations for finding a string or word combination inside text or binary files
PRGrep is a lightweight Windows application designed to help users perform search operations for finding a string or word combination inside text or binary files.

It sports a clean and straightforward interface that allows users to perform most operations with just a few clicks.

PRGrep gives users the possibility to apply various criteria for accurate search results. This way, you can make the program look for specific words or phrases, specify the directory to be scanned, add exceptions, as well as select the search mode (text or binary).

Other important options worth mentioning let you create backups, open files with default applications, include binary files in the searching process, search inside compressed files, and include subdirectories.

What’s more, you can limit the number of found lines to a specified number, use Microsoft office for reading files, highlight a found string by selecting the foreground and background colour, select the numeral system (decimal, octal, or hexadecimal), as well as set a default text editor.

The search parameters can be saved and used for other operations, and you can also export the generated information to a plain text file, HTML or XML file format.

During our testing we have noticed that PRGrep accomplishes a task very quickly and without errors throughout the entire process. It manages to remain light on the system resources, so it doesn’t hamper computer performance, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.

To sum things up, PRGrep offers a simple software solution when it comes to looking for words inside text or binary files.
