    searching in text editors

    i often find i need to search for words in my projects. i normally use pspad for the editing, but i find dreamweaver is much quicker to search through all the files. i have just moved jobs and the ide we use is zend, but the search speed is not very good.

    are there any good free text editors that can search folders/projects at a fast speed?

    thanks

    If I am looking for things in a file I tend to use the linux command line tools (grep, find, etc.) and then open the files in Zend. For an editor I use UltraEdit but haven't tried to search multiple files to see what its search speed is like. It isn't free but it is cheap.

    If you are on a windows platform you can get a freeware package of linux commands that will make your command prompt feel like you are on a real operating system.
