Platinum Searcher. A code search tool similar to `ag`.

  • Find files containing "foo" and print the files with highlighted matches:
    pt foo
  • Find files containing "foo" and display count of matches in each file:
    pt -c foo
  • Find files containing "foo" as a whole word and ignore its case:
    pt -wi foo
  • Find "foo" in files with a given extension using a regular expression:
    pt -G='\.bar$' foo
  • Find files whose contents match the regular expression, up to 2 folders deep:
    pt --depth=2 -e '^ba[rz]*$'
