A new release of grep, 2.27-1, has been uploaded and will soon reach a
mirror near you; leaving the previous version at 2.25-1.
This is a new upstream release. For more details on grep, see the
documentation in /usr/share/doc/grep/.
GNU Grep searches one or more input files for lines containing a match
to a specified patter. By default, Grep outputs the matching lines.
The GNU implementation includes several useful extensions over POSIX.
