ack 3

ack is a code-searching tool, similar to grep but optimized for programmers searching large trees of source code. It is highly portable and runs on any platform that runs Perl.

ack is written and maintained by Andy Lester (andy@beyondgrep.com).

Building

ack requires Perl 5.10.1 or higher. Perl 5.10.1 was released August 2009.

# Required
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
sudo make install # For a system-wide installation
# - or -
make ack-standalone
cp ack-standalone ~/bin/ack3 # For a personal installation
