Using the results of locate for grep
Let's say that I do a locate command to find all txt files:
ex. locate .txt
How can I use the results in a grep command (to search what is in the files)?
For example: I use locate to find all text files and in each of those text files, I want to find the name "mike" with grep.
Thanks in advanced
This is one way:
locate *\.ksh | xargs grep -l 'mike'
The -l makes sure you only see a hit once.
