FERRET A program to search CMS files for character strings

This program allows you to search any CMS file on any currently accessed minidisk for a particular character string. If any files meeting the search criteria are found, the results will be displayed in a file called FERRET OUTFILE. In addition, processing information is written to a file called FERRET LOGFILE. The executable version of this code is compiled REXX format; source code is also provided.

See FERRET NEWS for more information.
