How to find files containing specific text in Linux?

Penguin by Lars Meiertoberens from the Noun Project If you would like to find a specific string of text within a directory of files, you can use the following command and example:

user@host:~$ grep -rnw '/path/to/directory/' -e 'searchterm'

Here's a breakdown of the example command and its parameters:

  • -r or -R will recursively (within directories) look at all files within the specified path.
  • -n will display the line number where the term shows up within each file.
  • -w Matches the whole word.

I've finally reactivated the blog using the Dokuwiki wiki-based CMS. There are still a few kinks in the site that I'm working to finalize as soon as my time and life allow. I chose Dokuwiki because of its flat file-based storage, simple syntax, and wiki nature, allowing this site to be more of a knowledge repository than just a blog.
