15.4.4 The External Grep Program

By default, for Grep searches the tool runs grep on Unix/Linux/FreeBSD/Mac OS X and a specific supplied grep.exe on Microsoft Windows. The actual searching utility used can be configured with the variable lw:*grep-command* .

The arguments passed to the searching utility are constructed using the values of lw:*grep-fixed-args* and lw:*grep-command-format* . It is not be necessary to alter the default values unless you use a non-default value of lw:*grep-command* or have a non-standard grep installed.

See the LispWorks Reference Manual for details of these Search Files tool configuration variables.
