== DESCRIPTION:

Replacement for grep. Recursively scans directories to match a given
Ruby regular expression. Prints highlighted results.

Based on the Perl tool 'ack' by Andy Lester.

Examples with similar grep:
 
  $ rak pattern
  $ grep pattern $(find . | grep -v .svn)

  $ rak --ruby pattern
  $ grep pattern $(find . -name '*.rb' | grep -v .svn)

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:
  
* Ruby regular expression syntax (uses oniguruma gem if installed).
* Highlighted output.
* Automatically recurses down the current directory or any given
  directories.
* Skips version control directories, backups like '~' and '#' and your
* ruby project's pkg directory.
* Allows inclusion and exclusion of files based on types.
* Many options similar to grep.

== SYNOPSIS:

See 'rak --help' for usage information.

== REQUIREMENTS:

* Ruby

== INSTALL:

* gem install rak
