publicspace.net is now shipping AquaGrep 1.0. AquaGrep is an OS X search utility designed as a Unix command line tool. The app features a more simplified user experience than the grep implementation in the Darwin kernel. According to publicspace.net:
publicspace.net is pleased to announce version 1.0 of its new "AquaGrep" product.
AquaGrep is a Mac OS X front-end to the Unix grep text search utility.
Grepis powerful and versatile text search features, its speed and its straight-forward working principle have made it one of the most heavily used Unix command line tools.
While Mac OS X comes with a full-featured grep implementation in its Darwin kernel, command line tools are notoriously difficult to use and do not offer the kind of user experience that Macintosh users have come to expect over the last 15 years.
