The file "ccl:examples;boyer-moore.lisp" contains a boyer-moore
string search algorithm and some code to patch MCL's "Search Files"
dialog to use it. Two of the functions in there will probably be
useful to you: bm-find-string-in-file & bm-find-string-in-files.
bm-do-dialog-file-search shows how to update the search window as
the files are being searched.
