how do i search files for a particular string?
from the console, how do i find a which files contain a particular string? i know that i could easily do it in X easily, but I'd like to learn how to do it from the command prompt.
doesn't it involve using the grep command? i tried reading the man pages for the grep command but i could make any heads or tails on how do search all files in a directory tree.
so could someone give me some examples?
