README.markdown

ack is a grep-like tool optimized for working with large trees of source code.

ack is not intended to be a general-purpose replacement for grep. ack is for searching source code of defined file types. For searching other files, you may want to stick with grep.

INSTALLATION

perl Makefile.PL
make
