in reply to diotalevi's grep

Just curious ... had there been any updates (especially related to any bugs (not that I have used it)) which are not reflected in OP? And, is the posted program being maintained?

    There's been no compelling reason to change it.

      Ok then; thanks much. I wanted to verify as I have been giving it (along with ack, and tcgrep) as references (for grep alternatives).

        ack is pretty neat and what I now use most of the time. I probably wouldn't have bothered to write my own version if ack had existed beforehand. I'd just have hacked on the archive reading to ack instead. I still probably will.

[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
[Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
