This is an IRC bot for grepping through the module ecosystem. It can be addressed by its full name ('greppable6') or its short name ('grep').

Functionally it does git grep -I --perl-regexp --line-number -e … inside perl6-all-modules repository. You can do it yourself just as easily, with the only exception that you won't get links to the sources.

You can find some extra examples in tests: greppable.t

⚠ please note that it takes a perl5 regex, not something else.

Usage examples


<eveo> greppable6: storage_test333
