around this issue grep can recurse on a given directory if you use the -r or -R flag. The second one will follow all symbolic links. The rgrep is a shortcut for grep -r.
grep -nsF 'myname@abc.com' -R /htdocs

hop of those help? I am using list.files() in r to read in files. However, the pattern= input will scan all files that contain that special string I am scanning for... , The pattern argument takes a regex, so you can use: pattern = "^CL"

Powershell - Find Files by Searching for String and Find/Replace Text

Tag : powershell , By : Angelo Giannatos

I wish this help you I'm learning powershell and trying to write a script that can find files in a directory by a string, and then do a find and replace on the files that are found. I want to store the file list as a variable and then loop through the files and replace specific strings. Here's my script and error, if you have any ideas it would be much appreciated. !
$GetFiles = Select-String -Path "C:\temp\*.xml" -Pattern "<cmn:BusinessName>ABC INC</cmn:BusinessName>"

foreach ($File in $GetFiles)
    $NewContent = Get-Content $File.Path | Foreach-Object { 
        $_ -replace "<cmn:FileNumber>0001234</cmn:FileReceiverNumber>", "<cmn:FileReceiverNumber>12345678</cmn:FileReceiverNumber>" `
           -replace "<cmn:DropIndicator>DROP</cmn:Indicator>", "<cmn:DropIndicator>DONTDROP</cmn:DropIndicator>"
    $NewContent | Set-Content $File.Path

Python, The fastest way to find string in multiple text files (some files are big)

Does that help My files are generated from an oracle application and if there is an error, i log it and stop generation my files.
So i search my string by reading the files from the end, because the string am looking for is an Oracle error and is at the end of the files.
wrd = b'ORA-'
path = 'C:\path\to\files'    
     #### opens the path where all of .txt files are ####
    for f in os.listdir(path):
        if f.strip().endswith('.txt'):
            with open(os.path.join(path, f), 'r') as ofile:
                            ofile.seek (0, 2)           # Seek a end of file
                            fsize = ofile.tell()        # Get Size
                            ofile.seek (max (fsize-1024, 0), 0) # Set pos a last n chars
                            lines = ofile.readlines()       # Read to end

                            lines = lines[-10:]    # Get last 10 lines
                            for line in lines:
                                if string in line:
                                    logging.error('There is an error {} in this file : {}'.format(line, f))
                        except IOError as e:
                            logging.error('Operation failed: {}'.format(e.strerror))

will be helpful for those in need Here is one way I figured out how to answer my own question above (with help and inspiration from user shellter above - thanks!):
ls -l | grep ^d | awk '{print $9}' > list_of_ligands.txt
mv list_of_ligands.txt ..

cd ..

while read NAME
        echo "$NAME"
        grep -l "$NAME" cert* | while read -r filename ; do
        cp $filename unique_ligands/$NAME
        cd unique_ligands/$NAME
        bash -c 'cat $(for((i=0;i<10000;i++)); do echo -n "cert-${i}.mol2 "; done) > zzz.txt 2> ./null'
        mv zzz.txt $NAME.mol2
        rm null
        rm cert*
        cd ../..
done < list_of_ligands.txt
