FIND AND EDIT STRINGS


Ever found a need to find
for a particular string
across the file system and
edit all those files which
contains that particular
string??

Here is a simple way.

Suppose you want to search
for a pattern "mphasis" across
file system and edit those
files..

Just type this at the
command prompt:

vi `find . -name "*" -exec grep -l mphasis {} \; -print`
