Build a search engine for plain text file

I have a file with about 900,000 lines. All fields are tab delimited. I would like to build a quick search engine around this text file without using any database. I used to do it long time ago but couldn't recall what tool I have used.

Do you have any suggestion?

Thanks!

Sounds like grep:

http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/grep.htm

or Awk:

http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/gawk.htm

I know I can pretty much do anything I need with those and other usual scripting.
