fgrep or find command question.
I want to find a string of characters any where in the system but I don't want the command(s) to bother looking a binary files. The string I'm looking for is more then likely in a plain text file.
What would the basic command look like, I tried this and it's taking forever:
fgreg -r string * (I'm searching from the root down) I don't know how I would set up a find command because I'm not looking for a file, just a the string of characters.
Any help will be apperciated.
