SOFTWARE THAT DOES?

By michaelh ·
I'm looking for software that'll search through text files without opening it on specific keywords. I want to sniff through all my archives Exchange produces for specific text. Is there such a program out there or is there an easier way to retrieveExchange archives?

SOFTWARE THAT DOES?

My advice is to learn a bit of Perl. It's free, it runs on Windows, and it will allow you to use the standard Linux/Unix command 'GREP' which does just what you want. You can download it at ActiveState's webpage www.activestate.com

It's pretty easy to learn and will come in handy for many other tasks.
