comment ant command not found when running from the path othe than ant installation directory
Did you install from source or an rpm? You need the ant binary in your $PATH in addition to any _HOME environment vars, but a package should have done that for you, e.g. by having a symlink from /usr/local/bin/ant to /usr/local/ant/bin/ant.

comment Reverse grepping
In addition to the excellent solutions posted, GNU grep has a --max-count (number) switch that aborts after a certain number of matches, which might be interesting to you.
