Several people have expressed a simmilar sentiment, but I don't quite understand why. As it stands grep can't recurse and search only certain files. I can only imagine how many time this probably has shown up on this and many other lists. After all if you can do grep <some text> *.c The logical thing is to expect the following to work grep -r <some text> *.c _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
