Unless I'm mistaken, the Solaris grep doesn't support -B -A or -C and there's no native grep on Windows.

I don't see how that is relevant, gnu grep supports it and is available for every platform, including solaris and windows

Also, ack is egrep

    This topic is Bio90's very first request for assistance at PerlMonks. Wouldn't it have been more helpful to have just directly offered grep as a better solution?
