I have ack-grep installed on my local machine, and find it indispensable for quickly 'acking' through a codebase when debugging.
However, on my cheap shared hosting, there is no ack-grep. One of the testimonials on betterthangrep.com mentions a
Rube Goldberg mess of find/grep/xargs
which sounds like what I need, but coming from the opposite direction.
Does anyone know what it might be?
