Like results in an Internet search engine. But this analogy is given only to explain what I mean under preview snippets. In other aspects I'm looking for a regular search with exact match and local text files, preferably with regexp support. Also I'd like to be able to specify how much lines or words to display around each result. I'm looking for a FOSS cross-platform application.
So far I found Notepad++'s Find in Files, but it shows only one line and is not cross-platform.
Then at this question I found AstroGrep, it does the job well, but isn't yet ported to Unices too.
Then I found this question and the correspondent Wikipedia list, yet those products seem bloated, I'm looking for a lightweight tool without browser interface, indexing, and such.
