[p4] Text Search functionality

Hello all,


            We are currently in the middle of a migration to Perforce from
VSS and I am beginning to get asked the same question over and over: "How do
I do a text search in Perforce?". After looking into it and not finding the
functionality in P4Win, I began searching the website knowledgebase and the
mailing list archives and to my surprise I could only find one reference to
that functionality in the mailing list archive and it was someone asking for
this functionality. I, not really caring for VSS, thought that was the one
useful feature it had. 


            Does anyone out there have a custom tool or utility that can
perform a text search against the Perforce depot and is there any
possibility of seeing this functionality put into a future release??
