    Phoronix: Grep 3.7 Released To Fix "Extreme Performance Degradation"

    If you have noticed grep regressing performance-wise in recent releases, you may want to upgrade to GNU Grep 3.7 released this weekend as it fixes a nasty performance regression...

      There is also ripgrep, a grep tool written in Rust that is supposedly really fast.
      ripgrep recursively searches directories for a regex pattern while respecting your gitignore - GitHub - BurntSushi/ripgrep: ripgrep recursively searches directories for a regex pattern while respecting your gitignore

        I wonder if there are Gnu Grep alternatives.

        I wonder if there's a Grep equivalent for non-textual data.

        EDIT: I just found this

        ngrep, etc.

            Ubuntu 20.04 is still using v3.1 and the issue started in v3.5.

              Can you tell me why you thought it's worth mentioning that it's written in Rust?

                No, I can't, but maybe that is why it's so fast? You know a core concept of Rust is fearless concurrency, oh and zero-cost abstractions.

                  Because Rust is changing the world with better software!

                    In C/C++ something is correct when someone can use it correctly, but in Rust something is correct when someone can't use it incorrectly.
