Grumble, Win 7 still doesn't have basic features that OS/2 had twenty years ago. Off to create a pointless one line batch file.

comment How can I set grep to default to a certain filename pattern?
Ah, left out a little detail. I'm working on a Win7 box most of the time. So no functions. I can put it in a batch file {grep %1 *.py} which is better than nothing. I just was hoping for a more canonical/config file or environment variable type solution.

If I knew which door, I might. But it could be any of about nine residences.

I have deleted it a couple of times, but whenever it is the strongest signal, it gets picked up again.

comment How can I read a windows backup from ubuntu
That page is really for extracting a windows backup in windows. Not what I am looking for at all. I have lost my last windows environment at home. I would prefer not to go through the effort of installing one, but that may be what I need to do.
