Subject: [PATCH] grep: add --max-count command line option
Date: Thu, 12 May 2022 13:20:09 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <pull.1264.git.git.1652361610103.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)

From: =?UTF-8?q?Carlos=20L=C3=B3pez?= <00xc@protonmail.com>

This patch adds a command line option analogous to that of GNU
grep(1)'s -m / --max-count, which users might already be used to.
This makes it possible to limit the amount of matches shown in the
output while keeping the functionality of other options such as -C
(show code context) or -p (show containing function), which would be
difficult to do with a shell pipeline (e.g. head(1)).
