*grep-command* Variable


Determines the search utility used by Grep searches in the Search Files tool in the LispWorks IDE.



Initial Value

"grep" on non-Windows platforms and nil on Windows.


If the value of the variable *grep-command* is a string, it is the search utility to run in the Search Files 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 LispWorks IDE User Guide for more information about the Search Files tool.
