Search multiple files with fewer restrictions.
This command prompts to select from a predefined grep rule set, then
runs grep using that rule set. A rule set provides an alternate
set of values for one or more of the variables
By default, the only rule set is named "all", and it provides a
setting of zero for
meaning it makes Epsilon search all files, not skipping any based on
their name or other characteristics.
You can define a new rule set by simply defining a variable whose name
is of the form varname-rulesetname. (For example, the default rule
set was created by defining a variable named
use-grep-ignore-file-variables-all.) The rule set variable should be set to the value for that
variable when the rule is applied. For example, you could make a rule
that skips only .bak files by defining a character array variable
grep-ignore-file-extensions-nobakfiles and setting it to
|.bak|". The rule set name "nobakfiles" will then
automatically appear in this command's rule set list.
