The title of this blog post is oh-so-very true, “grep is a beautiful tool.” In his post, Eric Wendelin has put together a fantastic tutorial that will help you realize the power of this simple and most useful command.
Eric also has another great tutorial on “Find” that you can read here. I recommend keeping an eye out and checking in on his blog from time to time for some other great tutorials to help you along your way.
Eric is a 24 year-old Software Engineer for Sun Microsystems who enjoys programming. He often donates time and code to non-profit organizations and some random open source projects.
