FWIW, in my `grep+.el':
. You can automatically rename the current grep buffer to reflect the args
using (add-hook 'grep-mode-hook 'grepp-rename-buffer-to-last-no-confirm)
. You can rename it thus on demand using `r'.
. `+' renames current grep buffer uniquely (without the args) and switches
to buffer `*grep*'
. `b' reads a grep buffer name and switches to that buffer. A grep buffer
here is any buffer whose name matches `'\\*grep\\*', which includes those
whose names include the arguments.
You might want to do something similar for grep.el.
