@RCola: Ubuntu is based on Debian, and thus inherits more or less all its workflows. EDIT: I skip the rest of my Debian/Ubuntu centric comment since the answer was simultaneously updated with the same info :-) .

comment Bash script with grep -w
You should rephrase your original question to specify that the problem has to do with UTF-8 specific characters. Also, look at "EDIT4" in my answer below where I use sed to work around the problem.

@NewBo: Yes, it sounds like it treats the ä as a word delimiter. It is most likely a UTF-8 issue. The easiest fix is probably to abandon grep for Perl in this case.

@NewBo: Post a minimal text file in your original question which exhibits the behavior you say.

comment Bash script with grep -w
OSX could very well be relevant. Have you looked at the manual for grep on your system? Is -w described? Otherwise, you can exchange -w in for '\<in\>', as was trying to be described in the now deleted answer. It could also be some strange unicode error on OSX, but try the above first.

comment Can I set-up a proxy server within a LAN?
Does it have to explicitly be a proxy? It sounds like you are describing a regular NAT router.

Yes, but that is exactly what -w does. Does it not work? Give an explicit example where it does not work. I did a test case just now, and it works just as you want, from all I can tell.
