One of my favorite flags is -c. It shows you how many lines match (or don’t match in conjunction with -v).

Hi Is it ok to print these? I'd be interested in laser cutting some into wood or acrylic as a nerdy gift

I always use -R instead -r because it follows symlinks -c is also useful :)

yeah another greap one, I love those, thanks for doing them! I usually use ag, mostly bc I was told to. I've noticed grep being wayyyy slower. Is it any better at anything than the alternatives you offer?

The first time I read in the man page that -A gave context After, -B gave context Before, and -C gave context both ways, I had to sit back in my chair and fan my face for a few seconds.

I've had actual business use for this in the games industry with skin weight files (my own format), among other things. It's very handy!

My favourite grep flags: -c for counting lines instead -l for displaying the file names only -P for Perl style regex matching

Big fan of sift and ripgrep. The silver searcher is too slow. =)

Awesome! Another flag I use often is `-I` to completely ignore binary files instead of saying "binary file 'x' matched"
