grep only does exact matches if you don't use any of the wildcard chars,
perhaps 'exact matches' isn't quite what you mean. Are you perhaps looking
for the '-o' option? Or do you mean you want to match an entire line, in
which case put '^' at the start of your comparison-string and '$' at the end.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
