I'm a little new on searching via bash, so feel free to give me suggestions on the methods to use instead of this, which I'll never use again :)
I'm searching for occurances of a string, recursively in a directory, with ~50 not-that-large php-files in it; some in current directory, some in directories beneath current dir, three levels of directories down at most.
The method I'm using is:
find . | xargs grep "module" > module.txt
When in simple (one level) directories, this works fine, but in this case, the file became 4 GB large until it filled up all space on the partition :) It wasn't even done yet..
Would someone educate me so I won't embarass myself again? Feel free to move this to another sibling site, if needed..
