OK. That was poorly worded. Lemmie try again.
The fgrep I am using does not have a -w switch. What does it do?
Okay. (Please don't top-post.)
You will almost certainly find it explained in the man page for regular
grep, then, as it's entirely usual to find there.

Select only those lines containing matches that form whole
words. The test is that the matching substring must either be
at the beginning of the line, or preceded by a non-word con-
stituent character. Similarly, it must be either at the end of
the line or followed by a non-word constituent character. Word-
constituent characters are letters, digits, and the underscore.
