Grep / ACK

Grep / ACK

Ack can be replacement for grep…..

# yum install ack

Suppose you are on /var/www/html, here you want to search text “svnlabs” in all files in current directory…. you can use:

# ack svnlabs
# man ack    (for more options)

grep : print lines matching a pattern.

find : search for files in a directory.

# grep -iR 'svnlabs' *.txt 
(It will search svnlabs in all text files in current directory)
