After all, in the event you imagine the dossier can be in a single of your many subdirectories, you could attempt to succeed in all of the documents which are in subdirectories of the present listing with this command: grep -i portend */*. txt let's accept it, even though, that isn't a really thorough seek. If that does not do it, let's use a extra whole answer: the locate command. Use the -exec choice on locate in order that if the predicates are actual as much as that time, it is going to execute a command for every dossier it unearths. you could invoke grep or different utilities like this: find . -name '*. txt' -exec grep -Hi portend '{}' \; dialogue We use the -name '*. txt' build to assist slim down the quest. this type of try might help, considering that having to run a separate executable for every dossier that it reveals is dear in time and CPU horsepower. probably you've got a coarse inspiration of ways outdated the dossier is (e. g. , -mdate -5 or a few such). The '{}' is the place the filename is positioned whilst executing the command. The \; exhibits the tip of the command, when you are looking to proceed with extra predicates. either the braces and the semicolon must be escaped, so we quote one and use the backslash for the opposite. it isn't important which approach we get away them, simply that we do break out them, in order that bash does not misread them. On a few structures, the -H alternative will print the identify of the dossier if grep unearths anything. generally, with just one filename at the command, grep will not hassle to call the dossier, it simply prints out the matching line that it reveals. considering we are looking through many documents, we have to understand which dossier used to be grepped. if you are working a model of grep that does not have the -H choice, then simply placed /dev/null as one of many filenames at the grep command. The grep command will then have multiple dossier to open, and should print out the filename if it unearths the textual content. See additionally guy locate discovering present documents and content material quickly challenge you want as a way to locate records with no need to attend for a protracted locate command to accomplish, otherwise you have to discover a dossier with a few particular content material. resolution in case your method has find, slocate, Beagle, highlight or another indexer, you're already set. If now not, inspect them. As we mentioned to find and working instructions, "Finding and working Commands", find and slocate seek advice database documents concerning the approach (usually compiled and up-to-date by way of a cron activity) to discover dossier or command names virtually immediately. the site of the particular database documents, what's listed therein, and the way frequently, might fluctuate from method to process. seek advice your system's manpages for info. $ find apropos /usr/bin/apropos /usr/share/man/de/man1/apropos. 1. gz /usr/share/man/es/man1/apropos. 1. gz /usr/share/man/it/man1/apropos. 1. gz /usr/share/man/ja/man1/apropos. 1. gz /usr/share/man/man1/apropos. 1. gz find and slocate do not index content material although, so see discovering records by means of content material, "Finding records through content material" for that. Beagle and highlight are examples of a pretty contemporary know-how referred to as machine se's or indexers.
