NAME
gid - Query ID database and report results. SYNOPSIS
gid [OPTION]... PATTERN... DESCRIPTION
Query ID database and report results. By default, output consists of multiple lines, each line containing the matched identifier followed by the list of file names in which it occurs. -f, --file=FILE file name of ID database -i, --ignore-case match PATTERN case insensitively -l, --literal match PATTERN as a literal string -r, --regexp match PATTERN as a regular expression -w, --word match PATTERN as a delimited word -s, --substring match PATTERN as a substring Note: If PATTERN contains extended regular expression metacharacters, it is interpreted as a regular expression substring. Other- wise, PATTERN is interpreted as a literal word. -k, --key=STYLE STYLE is one of `token', `pattern' or `none' -R, --result=STYLE STYLE is one of `filenames', `grep', `edit' or `none' -S, --separator=STYLE STYLE is one of `braces', `space' or `newline' and only applies to file names when `--result=filenames' The above STYLE options control how query results are presented. Defaults are --key=token --result=filenames --separator=space -F, --frequency=FREQ find tokens that occur FREQ times, where FREQ is a range expressed as `N..M'. If N is omitted, it defaults to 1, if M is omitted it defaults to MAX_USHRT -a, --ambiguous=LEN find tokens whose names are ambiguous for LEN chars -x, --hex only find numbers expressed as hexadecimal -d, --decimal only find numbers expressed as decimal -o, --octal only find numbers expressed as octal By default, searches match numbers of any radix. --help display this help and exit --version output version information and exit REPORTING BUGS
