ack is a grep-like program with optimizations for searching through large
trees of source code.

Key improvements include:

    * Defaults to only searching program source code
    * Defaults to recursively searching directories
    * Ignores blib directories.
    * Ignores source code control directories, like CVS, .svn and _darcs.
    * Uses Perl regular expressions
    * Highlights matched text

ack is a tool like grep, designed for programmers with large trees of
heterogeneous source code.

ack is written purely in Perl, and takes advantage of the power of
Perl's regular expressions
