+<samp><span class="command">grep</span></samp> searches the input files
+for lines containing a match to a given pattern list. 
+When it finds a match in a line,
+it copies the line to standard output (by default),
+or produces whatever other sort of output you have requested with options.
+   <p>Though <samp><span class="command">grep</span></samp> expects to do the 
matching on text,
+it has no limits on input line length other than available memory,
+and it can match arbitrary characters within a line. 
+If the final byte of an input file is not a newline,
+<samp><span class="command">grep</span></samp> silently supplies one. 
+Since newline is also a separator for the list of patterns,
+there is no way to match newline characters in a text.
