pHiSearch – Free Text Search Software

pHiSearch is a free text search software that can search inside all type of files. It comes really handy for programmers as this can search inside any type of ASCII and Unicode files. It does not search inside file extensions like .aspx, .vb, .js, and more. That’s where pHiSearch shines.

pHiSearch comes with a nice algorithm that can read text inside all type of files irrespective of file extension. So, pHiSearch can search in .Html, .cs, .sql, .xml, .vb, and more. Only feature that I find missing in pHiSearch is text replace feature.
