I have a unique need: I am frequently searching a large set of text files for a keyword or two.
Right now, I open up Notepad++ and use the "Find in files" feature. It works just fine, but with the amount of files, each search takes a couple minutes to complete.
Is there a good program more suited for this purpose, perhaps that indexes a set of files and then lets you search the set repeatedly and very quickly? It would greatly speed up my workflow.
