That's three of you. Do none of you use the revision control's grep? I
understand Lyndon's point about a local script that greps and filters,
and I often have ./g to do that, but with `git grep' I can search
through the working area's files under its control, so I don't see hits
in output files, the --cached staging area, or a particular revision.
Because MH and all its RCS ,v files are current there are many hits on
them, e.g. for strcpy. Can't you all just have a checkout of the last
git with MH to look at for reference? :-)
So make a ./gg that does the same thing as ./g, but for 'git grep'.
