Although in my case the files are few I will keep this sample handy if I ever need to work on large number of files. I think I am going to research what would it take for someone to fix grep and pay them. How do think we would want grep to work? Do we want something like: grep -r <string> *.c If I get someone to change grep anyone care to comment on whether it would be difficult to get this imported into the tree? _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
