I'll work on it. However, as the name implies, TextSearch is
designed to only search text files, and it does do some filtering to
exclude obvious binary files (and most files >100MB are probably
going to be binary files)

That's a dangerous assumption to make, and besides that, is there a
reason to re-event a poorly implemented "grep" clone?

IMO "grep -rn" in Terminal with the hyperlink features pwns TextSearch anyway. ;-) SCNR
