Facilitates retrieval of personalized comments previously put into code. While writing new, (or reviewing old) code, user adds search-tag (the string "EGOF") to comments. Subsequently running Egof (followed by optional search words) retrieves them.

Code can be in any programming language, or scripts used by applications, or HTML or LaTex files.
Sounds like a combination of Unix find/grep, but has many more features. Searching is faster since database files are created, one per language. When creating them Egof goes through all (or specified subset of) user's folders/files, finds instances of the search-tag, and stores those lines of code plus some surrounding code.

During running, Egof displays a prompt, and allows users to change options and modify the search, (using the same option-parsing software that was used to parse the command line.)

Egof is command-line based.

The documentation is comprehensive. Please invest <5 min to read the "Overview" section. Thank you.


  • Searches can be narrowed by adding additional word(s) at the prompt or command line.
  • Precede a search word with "!" to specify that it NOT be present in a comment.
  • Remove a specific word from the search list
  • Set the search to an OR or AND of the search words
  • Search that portion of the line that precedes, follows, or both sides of the search-tag
  • Case-sensitive or insensitive search
  • Regexp-style search available
  • Display a wider range of lines around the line that contains the search-tag
  • Limit the search to files in or below current working directory (--cwd or --cwd+)
  • Limit the number of results displayed
