Utility for matching boolean queries in text.
Bool is a utility for finding files that match a boolean expression. It supports AND, OR and NOT as well as the NEAR operator for locating two expressions within a short distance from each other. The program has separate text processing and HTML processing algorithms; the former separates patterns separated by newlines or words separated by hyphens. The latter understands many features of the HTML 4.01 standard.
