grep is one of the most commonly used command in linux. It feels to me that its basic feature to highlight the string you searched for on the output lines. this can be achieved by --color option.
Typing --color every single time is annoying and also not productive. Is there any way to change grep to behave as grep --color.
I tried writing a small script named it grepd and added this to my PATH variable. But the script doesnt work on the input grepd . Any suggestions please.
#!/bin/bash grep --color $1 $2
