Determines the search utility used by the Grep tool in the Common LispWorks development environment.

Initial Value

"grep" on Unix/Linux/Mac OS platforms.

nil on Windows.


If the value is a string, it is the search utility to run in the Grep tool.

If the value is nil , then the value of

(sys:lispworks-file "etc/grep")

is expected to be an executable, which is run. On Windows a suitable grep.exe is included with LispWorks in this location.

The search utility is passed arguments constructed using *grep-command-format* and *grep-fixed-args*.

See the Common LispWorks User Guide for more information about the Grep tool.
