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.
Much underrated toolkit...
Having tried it out, I have to say FOX is a pretty good
Qt is more powerful, but for people who need
something LGPLed, FOX is definitely the right choice.
Much better than GTK, unfortunately not very widely

This has been announced today:
From: Trolltech Information
Date: 2005-02-07 14:23:52
Dear Qt User/Qt Customer:
Trolltech is pleased to announce that we intend to
make Qt 4 for Windows
available under our successful dual licensing
business model. This means that
Open Source projects under the GNU GPL license
will be able to target all
major operating systems using Qt 4. We plan to
release the Windows Open Source
version of Qt at the same time as Qt 4.
So now everyone can finally stop using that inferior
toolkit with 3 letters ;)
