 Linux.com | GNU grep's new features

Grep and new features. Guess I never thought much about new features for grep. After grep is ... well grep. There is always perl right?

"One highlight of the new version is its ability to output only matched patterns. This is one of the most exciting features, because it adds completely new functionality to the tool. Remember, "grep" is an acronym -- it got its name from a function in the old Unix ed utility, global / regular expression / print -- and its purpose was to output lines from its input that match a given regular expression."
