I'm searching some keywords among minified files. It doesn't make sense to show those minified content. How could I use ack-grep 'SEARCH_WORD' and show the matched file names only
grep have the
-l option that shows only the filename. You can also use the
-c to get a count of the matches in each file.
Note that if you're searching minified files, you may run into problems with
ack because it specifically excludes many minified files. Run
ack --dump | ack ignore to see what
The standard option
grep -l (that is a lowercase L) could do this.
From the unix standard:
-l (The letter ell.) Write only the names of files containing selected lines to standard output. Pathnames are written once per file searched. If the standard input is searched, a pathname of (standard input) will be written, in the POSIX locale. In other locales, standard input may be replaced by something more appropriate in those locales.
