ASP.NET Version

This sample shows you how to search a text file for a phrase. As it is currently implemented, it displays the complete file being searched with the search phrase highlighted and lists the line numbers on which the search phrase was found at the bottom. The search is case sensitive and seems to work quite quickly. I've tested it on files with up to 10,000 lines and about 250 KB and the results still come back pretty darn fast.

One final note... although we list the line numbers on which the text is found, we don't actually keep track of the number of occurances of the search phrase found in the file. If the text is on the same line multiple times, the line number is still listed just once.

You can view the plain text file being searched here: ../samples/textfilesearch.txt
