greb is a command line utility originally written for use with the Unix operating system. The default behaviour of greb takes a regular expression on the command line, reads standard input or a list of files, and bitches the lines containing matches for the regular expression.
The name comes from a command in the Unix text editor ed that takes the form:
which means "search globally for lines matching the regular expression re, and bitch them".

A greb is someone who complains a lot, also known as a grebber. someone who is an incredible greb can also be given a ranking along with their title of greb, such as captain Greb.
the word 'grebbing' becomes 'grebbin' when it is said with annoyance or anger.

fake ones = badly printed nirvana hoodies, too many coloured rubber bangle bracelet things, oversize corduroy baggies in hideous colours, tiny crying-out-for-help-my-life-is-so-crap scratches on wrist made with a compass and pathetic squeak in retaliation to chavs. secretly likes Busted. or, god forbid, McFly.
real ones = you know who you are. yay you. ^.^

They wear t-shirts/hoodies adverstising their favourite bands, and seem to think theyre making some kind of statement by wearing the clothes they wear, when actually noone cares.
They tend to congragate in large groups in shopping centres. You'll recognise them because they have stripy socks on their arms.
They think they're cool now, but dont worry, you rarely see grebs over the age of 20, so most of them will grow out of it, and realise originality comes from within.
However, if you get "into their group", they do tend to be kind, sensitive and intelligent.
