AstroGrep is a Microsoft Windows grep utility. Grep is a UNIX command-line program which searches within files for keywords. AstroGrep supports regular expressions, versatile printing options, stores most recently used paths and has a "context" feature which is very nice for looking at source code.

AstroGrep v4.4.2 Released
Posted on June 4, 2015
This release fixes a few bugs reported against the file encoding detection and a couple of other bugs. A portable version is now available. We also updated the application icon.
AstroGrep v4.4.1 Released
Posted on May 19, 2015
This release addresses an issue where unchecking the file detection option doesn't completely restore how AstroGrep worked before we added that option. Also, there is a speed decrease using this option as pointed out by a user. We are looking into the issue. With this point release and unchecking the option, AstroGrep should return to the previous speed (however, you lose file encoding detection, and that may be important to you).
