@kensanata that's exactly the issue. It gives a highlight of all the tools... But all this stuff (including the manual) count on the fact that users already know grep and know what grep -e is etc.

I wrote a draft last night for a post and I need to finish it, will put it there too. It's not complete, actually, it's just a bare bone start as to how to use m-x grep in emacs with examples. I think that's a good place to start 🙂
