Some possibilities....

On Windows, the shareware text editor UltraEdit can do searches (including regular expressions) and show line numbers.

On Macintosh, BBEdit is the text editor of choice.

Does anyone know of a way to do this? In Word, of course, it's simple,
but that formatting is lost when the file is saved as plain text.
