Binary file (standard input) matches

Hi,

I currently run ubuntu through VB and after mounting windows drive/accessing files through gnome, I keep getting this message "Binary file (standard input) matches" when I try to run "grep -0 name"

Any idea what could be causing this?

Thank you!

Hi,

what is "grep -0" supposed to do?

I'm aware of "grep --null" or "grep -Z" but never came across "-0"!
