Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : grep
Version     : 2.5.1
Release     : 31.2
Summary     : The GNU versions of grep pattern matching utilities.
Description :
The GNU versions of commonly used grep utilities.  Grep searches
through textual input for lines which contain a match to a specified
pattern and then prints the matching lines.  GNU's grep utilities
include grep, egrep and fgrep.

You should install grep on your system, because it is a very useful
utility for searching through text.
