I did a test on the 30MB sized logs and the RE did indeed come out the 
faster, thought not by much. The interesting thing is it caught more as 
well since my script looked for exact matches and the RE based one 
ignored case (as far as my feeble brain understands such things).

I remember why I had the "result" statement. It was because I needed to 
write the keyword found and then the line it was found on to the hits file.

Can't seem to make that work with the RE based one. Then again...I know 
RE as far as the east is from the west.
