Usage

$> hgrep
Usage: hgrep [-e|--regex] EXPRESSION [FILE]

hgrep requires an expression and a set of files to search across.

An expression can be one of

  • The name of a type, e.g. FooBar
  • The name of an expression, e.g. foo
  • A regular expression (via the -e flag), e.g. -e Foo$

Each file will be parsed and searched. Results will be printed to the console, with syntax highlighting where possible.

Requirements

You can use cabal or stack to install, but you may need libpcre. In case you don't have it:

Ubuntu

sudo apt update
sudo apt install libpcre3-dev

Fedora

sudo dnf update
sudo dnf install pcre-devel

NixOS / Nix Package Manager

nix-env -i pcre

Install

Stack

git clone https://github.com/thumphries/hgrep.git
cd !$
stack install

Cabal

git clone https://github.com/thumphries/hgrep.git
cd !$
cabal new-build

Mafia

git clone https://github.com/thumphries/hgrep.git
cd !$
mafia build

Nix

git clone https://github.com/thumphries/hgrep.git
cd !$
nix-build -E 'with import <nixpkgs> {}; haskellPackages.callCabal2nix "hgrep" ./. {}'

Searching for top-level expressions

$> hgrep main main/hgrep.hs
main/hgrep.hs:16:1-13

-- | Run the program.
main :: IO ()
main/hgrep.hs:(17,1)-(18:27)

main = do
  putStrLn "Hello, world!"

Searching for type declarations

$> hgrep PrintOpts src/**/*.hs
src/Language/Haskell/HGrep/Internal/Data.hs:(40,1)-(42,28)

data PrintOpts = PrintOpts {
    poColourOpts :: ColourOpts
  } deriving (Eq, Ord, Show)

Searching with a regular expression

$> hgrep -e 'Opts$' src/**/*.hs
src/Language/Haskell/HGrep/Internal/Data.hs:(57,1)-(59,28)

data PrintOpts = PrintOpts {
    poColourOpts :: ColourOpts
  } deriving (Eq, Ord, Show)
src/Language/Haskell/HGrep/Internal/Data.hs:(61,1)-(64,26)

defaultPrintOpts :: PrintOpts
src/Language/Haskell/HGrep/Internal/Data.hs:(67,1)-(70,5)

defaultPrintOpts =
  PrintOpts {
      poColourOpts = DefaultColours
    }
