RE: Grep entire file system

from the root of the tree you want to look in   (i.e. your ORACLE_HOME or
even /)

find . -exec grep -il sqlplus {} \;

This will find all files that CONTAIN the word sqlplus, reguardless of case,
INSIDE them.

Does anyone have a command that will grep for all files in a file system
that contain a string like "sqlplus"?
I can do it within a directory, but I want it to look at all the
directories.

Thanks!
Ron
