Unicode Text Grep

Grep unicode descriptive names and display matching characters. All descriptions are punctuation-free ASCII (low bit). All searches are case insensitive.

grep special characters supported: * + ? . ^ $ []

grep special characters supported:

0 or more of last
1 or more of last
0 or 1 of last
any single character
force (anchor) to be at start (only useful at start)
force (anchor) to be at end (only useful at end, and watch out for trailing whitespace!)
character class (normal sequence shortening with - allowed, and ^ at start to invert works)

From your terminal shell, ugrep by hackerb9 may also prove useful.
