I would like to tell you about 2 freeware tools that I use daily. BareGrep Bare Grep is a file and inner file searching tool. It has all the basic search options like reg-ex and wild card search. BareTail. Bare Tail is a log file monitoring tool. It can highlight log rows by predefined strings. The reason I love these 2 tools is: A. They are freeware(yeah I know there are paid versions but the freeware versions are not bad at all). B. They are very straight forward. C. Most important – they are extremely light-wight. Very recommended. Download from products web site.
