From NTK: There's something quintessentially UNIXique about NGREP. It's a stubby, simple tool, with thousands of potential (but as yet unforeseen) uses. Also - and this has to be the best indicator of a perfect CLI tool - you've already guessed what it does from the name. Yes, it's a packet sniffer which can pluck out regular expressions from network traffic and pipe them to STDOUT. Like all things UNIX (including UNIX), we expect someone will eventually pervert this beautiful, theoretically and malicious tool for non-evil and practical purposes. In the meantime - have fun.

TBTF Rightly to apprehend. It has a great quote from Charles Babbage - "On two occasions I have been asked [by members of Parliament], 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
