Pattern searching program for Linux?

Postby David » March 8th, 2013, 6:35 am

Can current searching programs (especially WLS) run in Linux?

If not, it may be great to make searching programs designed for Linux, having super fast speed. ^_^

I don't think you lose any significant power by running the search program under an emulator, most time is spent in raw CPU without any system calls, these are usually emulated rather efficiently.

Search programs which go with source code can very be usually compiled on Linux.

And then here's JLS which runs on Java.
