  • Sounds like you want zsh... Most of the file selection stuff can be done with zsh's extended globbing []. Then it becomes available for every application, not just ack/grep.

    But the colour highlighting does look cool. :-)


    • Don't be so mean: zsh isn't for everyone out there. Remember the OS-impaired people. I know they (me among them) possibly can install a port of zsh, but installing ack is so much easier. And there is the portability issue Andy mentioned.

      Disclaimer: installing ack is easy if you have a working setting for CPAN, which is not that hard.

      • Well, there's always cygwin if you want bash or zsh under windows. It's not for everybody, but I find it to be a tolerable working environment when I'm in Windows.

        But I more just wanted to point out a feature that I use everyday. grep Foo **/*.pm is really handy and I think more people should use zsh and take advantage of these features!
