FGREPPE 3.13 Options

FGREPPE has option Menu sections for:

	File, View, Search, Replace, Misc and Help.

All these menus have options.  Many are shared by other IS Text
Tools and PDGREPPE.

Search and Replace Menu options are detailed in GREPPES Options
and many of them are shared with PDGREPPE and the newline
translation Text Tool named NLX.

Some FGREPPE Search Options are unique to FGREPPE and affect
pattern interpretation, case sensitivity and important search
criteria such as finding words only or using the entire contents
of a file as the search pattern.

As well, a standard HELP menu gives options on options as shown
in COMMON Options.

For BEGINNERS the options most useful are listed in the
Greppes Options section.

In FGREPPE a very useful option is:

	-w	  search for pattern as entire Word.

OPTION:

-w	  search for pattern as entire Word.


A sequence of characters can be a word if they are all in the
Word Character Range.

This option helps to select a word rather than a syllable or
part of an entire word that is larger.

For example to find the word

"one"

the option -w will only find the word

"one"

and NOT "one" in

"bones"

and NOT "one" in

"ones"

and NOT "one" in

"tone".

Or this option will find phrases that have definite word stops
at both start and end like

	"old bones"

in

	"I found some old bones"

rather than "old bones" in

	"Gold bones"

Or for a pattern "final word" it will find

	"final word"

by itself rather than the phrase "final word" in

	"final words".


	fgreppe -Hjc "pattern" file_id.diz


...any "pattern", even as "pattern" of "patterns".


	fgreppe -Hjc -w "pattern" file_id.diz


..."-w" only finds "pattern" as a complete word, not "patterns".

If either end of the pattern contains characters that are not
Word characters, then the match of the pattern end is always
made like usual.
