Swinggrep

One fan of package pat was inspired to provide a better grep utility. The improvements include:
  1. Showing each file path only once, giving more spaces for the lines found.
  2. Searching all subdirectories recursively (this feature can be disabled with a checkbox.
  3. Highlighting every match in a line, not just the first one.
  4. Better colors.
  5. Statistics about matches.
  6. Use of swing rather than awt for graphics.
  7. The ability to save results.
