Gnome terminal 2.1.0, centos 5 - how to 'find' text listed on terminal screen


Since I see on my Centos 5 system, when using the Gnome Terminal, there is no 'Find' feature, do I use grep to search the output on Gnome Terminal?

I see grep syntax is:

grep search-term file

But what do I use as the 'file' when what I want to search is the contents of the gnome terminal screen?

P.S. If there is a good terminal program that does have a 'find' feature, let me know.

Thanks!

Redirect the output to a file and grep that.

Install konsole. It has a good search feature.

On Debian and Ubuntu, at least, you can install it from the repos without having to install the entire KDE package.
