  1. Basic Makefile, to either use almost as-is or convert to a simple REA…

    …DME isntead :)
    The point is to doc how I use this.

  2. Add a git-grep wrapper to implement smartcase, for parity with git-vi…

    …ack in aliases
    I now use the following two git aliases, for example:
            ack = "grep-with-smartcase -I --perl-regexp --break --heading --line-number"
            ag  = "grep-with-smartcase -I --perl-regexp --break --heading --line-number"
    after symlinking git-grep-with-smartcase into my path.
    With that in place, git ack and git ag match the behaviour of git viack
    and git viag.

  1. Ignore binary files when using git grep

    Matches the default behaviour of ag/ack.

  1. Run vim with a quickfix list, preloaded pattern, and a file list

    This lets me run through the matches (:n + n or :cn) and view the list
    (:buffers or :cl) any way I please.  Note that the -q option to vim
    won't accept a list of files after it.

  2. Unify git-viack into viack for great pattern transformation justice

    git doesn't translate Perl patterns into Vim patterns, but now git-viack
    To switch from the previous git-viack or a git viack alias, just
    unlink/unalias it and link to viack instead using git-viack (or
    git-vigrep).  The git command when viack is invoked as git-vi... is
    always "grep", regardless of what "..." is.

  1. Easy ways to use a grep other than ack

    1. Symlink or copy viack as viag to use ag instead of ack.
    2. Export VIACK_GREP=ag to use ag instead of ack when calling viack.
    VIACK_GREP takes priority, then how viack was invoked, with the default
    being ack.

  2. \\b in a pattern isn't \b

    Require the start of line or any character not a slash before a \b to be
    translated into vim's syntax.  Technically not 100% correct as it'll
    false negative on \\\b, but that's OK for now.  I haven't run into it in
    practice unlike the bug fixed by this change.

  1. git viack

    This isn't really ack, of course, but it's git grep with Perl regexps and
    auto-opening files in vim +/pat.  My finger macros know viack, so git
    viack is a natural extension unlike, say, git vigrep.

  1. Translate \b into \W\@= for vim

    \W\@= is vim syntax for "zero-width match on a non-word character".
    I think this works for any instance of \b, unlike \< and \> in vim which
    explicitly match start and end (respectively) of a word.

  1. Naive port of viack to Perl for less crazy

    Fixes the "spaces in matched files" bug [GH #3] while I'm at it, because
    it was simple.

  1. Try to make vim's magic regex mode more like Perl's standard regexes

    The most common problematic magic characters are < and >, so we escape
    them along with a few others pulled from :help magic.

  1. Add \v to the beginning of the vim regex to make it behave more like …

    Awesome.  I've been looking for this flag forever.
