       eid - Query ID database and report results.


       eid [OPTION]... PATTERN...


       Query ID database and report results.  By default, output consists of multiple lines, each
       line containing the matched identifier followed by the list of  file  names  in  which  it

       -f, --file=FILE
              file name of ID database

       -i, --ignore-case
              match PATTERN case insensitively

       -l, --literal
              match PATTERN as a literal string

       -r, --regexp
              match PATTERN as a regular expression

       -w, --word
              match PATTERN as a delimited word

       -s, --substring
              match PATTERN as a substring

              Note:  If  PATTERN  contains  extended  regular  expression  metacharacters,  it is
              interpreted as a regular expression substring.  Otherwise, PATTERN  is  interpreted
              as a literal word.

       -F, --frequency=FREQ
              find tokens that occur FREQ times, where FREQ is a range expressed as `N..M'.  If N
              is omitted, it defaults to 1, if M is omitted it defaults to MAX_USHRT

       -a, --ambiguous=LEN
