Hi Shannon,

I think the Unix "grep" does this. I am not 100% sure though. It's been
a long time since I used it.

Search OS/400 Physical Files

Does anyone know of a utility that will allow you to do a generic search
OS/400 one or more physical files (singly or all at once) for records
containing a particular character string?

I'm thinking of something like the Windows Search function which allows
to search for files containing a string within them.

I wonder if one of the unix-type commands I could run in Qshell would have
something that would work.
