Find two or more strings in an output

  1. #11

    crawfish, works like a charm. I tried | with grep and it didn't work. Does work correctly with egrep though.

    So, one solution is to download and install UnxTools from the link I provided earlier then use dir piped to egrtep as crawfish showed.

    It seems like Find would be ideal. Run Linux Find and for all files matching the pattern run command
    ls -l

    Some of the Linux ports may also let you run "Dos" commands in the shell. Maybe escaped somehow, if the actual Dir result is what is desired. Some have stand-alone exe Dos/Windows versions of Linux commands and others use a Bash shell for more sophisticated pattern matching; doing sed stream edits with patterns etc..

    Depends how much the OP wants to do.

    Edit: It may seem more convenient to avoid the bash shell, but it runs in a console window and is no big deal. The big advantage is you don't get tangled up with Windows directory separator backslashes messing up the patterns. You can get many cool sed and nawk "one liners" and run them without editing them. That pattern matching stuff as soon as you start to edit it then the patterns are untested. With bash you can just copy and paste them in.
