Ack can easily be restricted so it only matches whole words, not portions
of words, by adding either C<-w> or C<--word-regexp>. For example,
ack -w skip
ack --w skip
will match lines that have the word "skip" by itself, but will not
match strings like "skipping" or "skipped".
This is identical to:
ack '\bskip\b'
