Guys,

Doesn't awk also provide this feature? Not seen strings before, but
have used awk.

Just my penny's worth.

Regards,
Tony

That sounds like the tinker!!!

I have no access to a Linux or Unix box right now - suggest reading the
man page.

Matthew, is 'strings' the command you are looking for?

Warren,

There's a command in linux (can't remember the name right now) that
actu=
=3D
ally looks inside
files for text strings. I *think* it is used along with the find
command=
=3D
 IIRC.

What ever you use IMHO it will be really resource intensive because the
=
=3D
script / command
etc. will have to go through all the files of your system searching and
=
=3D
then possibly
replacing the string with another.

Just out of interest what are your keywords? Are the files going to be
a=
=3D
ny specific type?

Regards,

Matt
