I am looking for a UI tool that scans files (filtered by file name patterns, maybe also regular expressions) in a given directory (tree) for occurrences of a given regular expression and displays results of capturing groups for each match in a table.
Notepad++ is capable of that:
- scans files filtered by file name patterns: 'Yes, see the "Filters" box in above screenshot.
- for occurrences of a given regular expression: Yes, see lower left radio box
- displays results of capturing groups for each match in a table: No grouping unfortunately, but results are listed and you can double-click on each to open the corresponding file and directly jump to the hit.
- gratis: yes.
- Windows: yes.
Have you tried Agent Ransack?
