Finding

This is about finding stuff.
To find a file with words in it;

grep -r 'tragedy and hope' /home/tom/Desktop/_Delta

find / -name 'gtk.h'

grep -r 'opportunity' '/home/tom/Tasks/0 Communications/Letters'

grep -r 'Woolworth' /home

A short script;

for file in $(ls); do
echo $file
cat $file | grep PATTERN
done
