Is there a good application to search for a string in multiple log files?

I run Sharepoint 2010 on a server, which writes log files to multiple files (well in a rolling log method) so I may want to find a certain error in all the files. What would be a good tool for this?

Thanks

The find command can search multiple files for a specific string.

Microsoft Log Parser, its an older resource tool kit tool that while built for IIS logs is quite flexable. A search for log parser and sharepoint will net you quite a few recomended use cases.

For both Unix and Windows system, I'm a big fan of betterGrep.

It should be noted, it's command line tool.
