FGREPPE 3.13

FGREPPE can:

Search for fixed-length patterns of data in files.

Replace found sections with simple fixed-length patterns.

Look for text regardless of capitalisation.

FGREPPE, like PDGREPPE, has many options.

An option (-E) is provided so that special non-key characters
can be searched for.

Special Pattern Characters include:

Single characters

A character may be have its representation keyed in by number
with option -E rather than through the keyboard.  See a table of
MSDOS or IBM extended characters for DECIMAL numeric values
corresponding to characters.

Example : \97 corresponds to character 'a'.

Example : \65 corresponds to character 'A'.

When option -i (case insensitive) is given, a pattern '\97' or
'\65' used with option -E will match either 'A' or 'a'.

\<0-255>	next character is 0 to 255

Multiple characters

A new-line MS-DOS character can also be entered easily with
option -E.

This represents 2 characters : carriage return followed by the
line feed character.

\N	new line or ASCII characters 13 then 10

Use companion program PDGREPPE to search for data in a more
sophisticated way.

Documentation that is common for both FGREPPE and PDGREPPE is in
Greppes Info.

Run FGREPPE with option -I for basic pattern information.
