<p>
If set to true, enable <code>-n</code> option by default.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
grep.patternType
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Set the default matching behavior. Using a value of <em>basic</em>, <em>extended</em>,
<em>fixed</em>, or <em>perl</em> will enable the <code>--basic-regexp</code>, <code>--extended-regexp</code>,
<code>--fixed-strings</code>, or <code>--perl-regexp</code> option accordingly, while the
value <em>default</em> will return to the default matching behavior.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
grep.extendedRegexp
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
If set to true, enable <code>--extended-regexp</code> option by default. This
option is ignored when the <code>grep.patternType</code> option is set to a value
other than <em>default</em>.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
grep.threads
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Number of grep worker threads to use. If unset (or set to 0),
8 threads are used by default (for now).

<p>
Instead of searching tracked files in the working tree, search
blobs registered in the index file.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--no-index
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Search files in the current directory that is not managed by Git.

<p>
Honor textconv filter settings.

<p>
Do not honor textconv filter settings.

--ignore-case

<dd>
<p>
Ignore case differences between the patterns and the
files.

<dt class="hdlist1">
-I

<dd>
<p>
Don&#8217;t match the pattern in binary files.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--max-depth &lt;depth&gt;
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
For each &lt;pathspec&gt; given on command line, descend at most &lt;depth&gt;
levels of directories. A negative value means no limit.
This option is ignored if &lt;pathspec&gt; contains active wildcards.
In other words if "a*" matches a directory named "a*",
"*" is matched literally so --max-depth is still effective.

<p>
Match the pattern only at word boundary (either begin at the
beginning of a line, or preceded by a non-word character; end at
the end of a line or followed by a non-word character).

-h
</dt>
<dt class="hdlist1">
-H
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
By default, the command shows the filename for each
match. <code>-h</code> option is used to suppress this output.
<code>-H</code> is there for completeness and does not do anything
except it overrides <code>-h</code> given earlier on the command
line.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--full-name
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
When run from a subdirectory, the command usually
outputs paths relative to the current directory. This
option forces paths to be output relative to the project
top directory.

is to use basic regexp.

<dd>
<p>
Instead of showing every matched line, show only the
names of files that contain (or do not contain) matches.
For better compatibility with <em>git diff</em>, <code>--name-only</code> is a
synonym for <code>--files-with-matches</code>.

<dt class="hdlist1">
--open-files-in-pager[=&lt;pager&gt;]
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Open the matching files in the pager (not the output of <em>grep</em>).
If the pager happens to be "less" or "vi", and the user
specified only one pattern, the first file is positioned at
the first match automatically. The <code>pager</code> argument is
optional; if specified, it must be stuck to the option
without a space. If <code>pager</code> is unspecified, the default pager
will be used (see <code>core.pager</code> in <a href="git-config.html">git-config(1)</a>).
</p>

lines that match.

<p>
Turn off match highlighting, even when the configuration file
gives the default to color output.
Same as <code>--color=never</code>.

Print an empty line between matches from different files.

Show the filename above the matches in that file instead of
at the start of each shown line.

<dt class="hdlist1">
--show-function
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Show the preceding line that contains the function name of
the match, unless the matching line is a function name itself.
The name is determined in the same way as <em>git diff</em> works out
patch hunk headers (see <em>Defining a custom hunk-header</em> in
<a href="gitattributes.html">gitattributes(5)</a>).

Read patterns from &lt;file&gt;, one per line.

<dt class="hdlist1">
-e
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
The next parameter is the pattern. This option has to be
used for patterns starting with <code>-</code> and should be used in
scripts passing user input to grep. Multiple patterns are

Specify how multiple patterns are combined using Boolean
expressions. <code>--or</code> is the default operator. <code>--and</code> has
higher precedence than <code>--or</code>. <code>-e</code> has to be used for all
patterns.

<p>
When giving multiple pattern expressions combined with <code>--or</code>,
this flag is specified to limit the match to files that
