Please go back and digest the quote I snipped for you (for the long
option). Here a more focused snipped from that:
If the first few bytes of a file indicate that the file
contains binary data [...] By default, TYPE is binary,
and grep normally outputs either a one-line message saying
that a binary file matches [...]
If TYPE is without-match, grep assumes that a binary file
does not match [...]
My English module masters this (and it is pretty old too. Moreover, it
was a cheap second-hand one, labelled "for foreigners" ;-)
Hey, the doc even contains the trigger phrase "binary file matches",
which is how I found the spot in the docs.
