Searching in Logs

I have recently developed an application in c witch acts like a
system logger for windows 2003 server domain controllers and my problem
is that of the size.
In a normal day my program produces more than 3-4 Mb of data in plain
text, and you can imagine that interpreting or getting information from
such a big file is time consuming, that's why I tryed to implement some
archiving functionality.
My question is if someone knows a fast string searching method in C (
Boyer-Moore ? ) and how do I implement pattern searching ( witch would
be 40% faster than Boyer-Moore )!

This is not an algorithms group, so selecting the right algorithm and
discussing algorithms is not on topic. Nor are non-standard libraries.
If you attempt to implement an algorithm and have problems with your
coding we can then help you with the coding. comp.programming might be a
better place to start, although you should read their FAQ and a few days
posts before asking there.

For pattern matching you could try the pcre library which is available
on both Windows and *nix, but don't ask here about how to use it.
