FYI i have fixed in anything the use of grep with the Gnuwin32 version
of grep.(See anything-config.el)

So it work now both in GNU/Linux and windows.

It is recursive by default like grep -r or -d recurse.

By the nature of the implementation of grep in anything, you
can select quickly a set of files/dirs not only in current directory but
anywhere in your system files, with the use of wildcard or not.
That increase the performance because you can search exactly in what you

It is usable without knowledge of grep command (just write in the prompt
what you search for).

Of course, it is incremental unlike the vanilla emacs grep.
With that i don't feel the need of grep/find.

You can access it at anytime from f5 a C-x C-f (aka M-x anything-find-files)
or with M-x anything-do-grep (f5 a M-g s).
