Re: [BillKSmith] Wrapper around the UNIX find | xargs grep

Well, the whole idea is to be able to type the following(or any variation of the allowed grammar) on the command line:


Code
$ search for "a string that interests me" \  
or "some other string" in *.ext or *.txt


...and have the program do what the English says. The op's second post complicates things even further by expanding on the allowed grammar. Writing a new program for every search is not what the op is after.
