Fast searches with the fgrep utility

fgrep is a fast searching utility that searches for multiple fixed strings simultaneously.

Its main use is for directory or bibliographic type searches. For example:

   fgrep -f surnames addresses

This searches the file addresses for each name held in the file surnames; a text file with one name per line.
