Not sure this is what you're after...
# cat DESCR
Glimpse (which stands for GLobal IMPlicit SEarch)
is an indexing and query system that allows
you to search through all your files very quickly.
For example, finding 296 lines containing 'whitehouse'
in 8750 files occupying 104MB took 6 seconds on
a SUN Sparc 5. Glimpse supports most of agrep's
options (agrep is our powerful version of grep)
including approximate matching (e.g., finding mis-
spelled words), Boolean queries, and even some
limited forms of regular expressions. It is used
in the same way, except that you don't have to
specify file names. So, if you are looking for a
needle anywhere in your file system, all you have
to do is say glimpse needle and all lines
containing needle will appear preceded by the file
It's console-only and has _no_ run dependencies.
