Is Glark a Better Grep?

"GNU grep is one of my go-to tools on any Linux box. But grep
isn't the only tool in town. If you want to try something a bit
different, check out glark a grep alternative that might might be
better in some situations.
What is glark? Basically, it's a utility that's similar to grep,
but it has a few features that grep does not. This includes complex
expressions, Perl-compatible regular expressions, and excluding
binary files. It also makes showing contextual lines a bit easier.
Let's take a look.
I installed glark (yes, annoyingly it's yet another *nix utility
that has no initial cap) on Linux Mint 11. Just grab it with
apt-get install glark and you should be good to go.
