Searching the "Reference Manual" Easily

It occurred to me that someone working exclusively in Windows may not know about how “grep” works. Using the “grep” command, you can keyword search all the “Reference Manual” html docs as though they were a unified document. If you haven’t used this before, it could change your life. You may be able to use “findstr” at the Windows command line to accomplish the same thing depending on your system setup (or try Linux for “grep”). Check “Duck Duck Go” (a search engine that respects your privacy) to find your quickest path to using one of these commands.
