Copyright (c)1993 by Cactus Software Systems(CSS). All Rights Reserved.

CactGrep is a very fast "grep" (global regular expression parser) for
searching thru file(s) for a particular string (or pattern) of characters.
This program will search text files as well as .com, .exe, .bin, .sys,
.gif, .lib and other binary (non-text) files.

Typing "CactGrep" at the DOS prompt will show a help screen.

Typing "CactGrep /?" will show an extended help screen.

CactGrep is distributed as "cheapware". You may try this program for 30 days
to see if it is of value to you before registering. If you find the product
to be of value you MUST pay the registration fee or stop using the program.

If you paid a fee for CactGrep to anyone but CSS, you did NOT register
CactGrep you paid for media and handling costs.

Registration will bring you faster versions that are compiled to use the
extra power of 80286 or 80386+ computers, as well as a faster 8086/88


CactGrep is provided AS-IS without warranty!

long as it cannot be used one more than one computer at a time.

from adjusting the program for specific needs. Individuals or organizations
wishing to incorporate CactGrep into a program should contact CSS directly
for very nominal licensing fees. The program compiles with Turbo C++ 3.0 or
