Can you use Google as grep? Not so much. That's because the use cases
are very different. grep is for linear search through unparsed content
(whitespaces and all) and it primarily find the matched string. There
is no ranking or long range matches.
Solr - similar to Google - is for processed/normalized/contextualized
search of content and returns whole documents (highlighting is nearest
to returning matched segments).
So, if your use case is grep, you are better of with SilverSearcher or
other efficient re-implementations in that domain of text processing.
