For those using Macs, I highly recommend getting the free app TextWrangler, and downloading its free user manual:

Chapter 8 gives a good intro on how to use grep, and TextWrangler itself is a wonderful way to do multi-file search and | replace operations with regular expression syntax.

ps. You don't see manuals like this much these days (a 258page pdf manual for a text editor!). Kudos to the tech writers who worked on it. It's a beautiful piece of documentation in its own right.
