find grep search-----string
Posted on 2004-08-22
what is the best way to find a string that has a string in it but one of the words change in it, can't seem to find the right wildcard to use.
need to find a sting line this: rfc822;firstname.lastname@example.org
I want to find this sting but in this case take the word smith out and use a wild card in it's place to find any string that fits this with any user name that is before the @ in this string. I usally use grep but maybe i could do it better with find??
