Web Development --- Command to search string through files on a server
 
Hi I am web developer I have this command find . -exec grep "Improve your score" '{}' \; -print for searching through files . I found this command but now i would like to tweak it to gain more out of it. IF somebody could break it to me and explain this command that will be really helpful. Thanks in advance.
