Great, thanks.

The output with grep-2.5.3 is 3:4, which means that the string "4" was
found at offset 3 (0-based). With grep-2.5.1, you get 0:4, which means
that the line containing the string "4" has offset 0. The "tr" commands
in the script ensure that the patterns we are looking for are always at
the start of a line, so that it doesn't matter which version of grep is
installed.
