Project description:
GNU grep is based on a fast lazy-state deterministic matcher (about
twice as fast as stock Unix egrep) hybridized with a
Boyer-Moore-Gosper search for a fixed string that eliminates
impossible text from being considered by the full regexp matcher
without necessarily having to look at every character. The result is
typically many times faster than Unix grep or egrep.
