People have mentioned using xargs in combination with find, but if you're dealing with Windows files on a server, be prepared for every kind of crap character in the filename you can imagine. Use nulls to delimit the filenames, i.e.: find . -mtime +7 -print0 | xargs -0 grep -i foo The GNU versions of find and xargs support the "0" options as well. -- Karl Vogel I don't speak for the USAF or my company iPod changed my life.
