Use Spotlight to speed up grep searches
Authored by: neuralstatic on Mar 23, '10 11:03:33AM

in some recent testing, we actually found grep about 4x faster over a directory of about 10,000 files.
if it were disk-wide that might give different results, but by no means is spotlight a clear winner always.
