  egrep 
 
  An  extended  version  of  the  {Unix}  command  {grep}.  Egrep 
  accepts  extended  {regular  expression}s  RE  including  "*" 
  following  multi-character  REs;  "+"  (one  or  more  matches);  "?" 
  (zero  or  one  matches);  "|"  separating  two  REs  matches  either 
  REs  may  be  bracketed  with  ().  Despite  its  additional 
  complexity,  egrep  is  usually  faster  that  {fgrep}  or  {grep}.
