find x with grep recursively - and open the file afterwards

Recommended Posts

hello dear php-experts,

 

 

the question of the day - how to find a file with a certain text -

 

the commands below do not help here .... the are good but they do not open the file

find . | xargs grep "texthere" *

grep -r "texthere" .

grep -r "a target="_blank""

find ./ -type f | xargs grep "foo"

hmm - well i guess that the grep command will help here.


well i want to do a seach recursively - through all files in a folder.
And i want to open fhe file - after it is found.  

How can we do this!?


love to hear from you

What do you mean by "open the file"? In an editor? vim (and surely emacs) accept multiple files as arguments and you can switch between them.

grep -r "texthere" . | xargs vim
