    Unanswered: Script to search text inside a file

    Hi guys. I need some help here.
    Is there is a program or a script like a clipboard monitor witch once started will stay in the system task bar and wait for a text to be captured with Ctrl+c, and once the text is memorized to automatically start searching that particular text inside a file witch I previously configured when I started the program, and when the text is found to show it into a small window among the other words in the phrase (some sort of a highlight thing), and with the possibility to search forward and backward in case there are other text matches in that file. The file types I am interested in are the .pdf, .html, or the .doc files,
    Thanks! and sorry for my bad english...

    not to my knowledge. These are three VERY different document formats, with PDF and DOC files being potentially quite complex.
