I'm new to Linux and am trying to search for text within a .c & .h file.

I use the following command in one of my subdirectories:

find ./ -name "*.c" -follow -exec grep "OpenFile" {}\; -print

and it just hangs everytime.  I was able to use this command yesterday and had no problems with it.

Shouldn't there be a space before the \; ?

find ./ -name "*.c" -follow -exec grep "OpenFile" {} \; -print
