I have a question on MS DOS.

Let's assume I am in a network drive.

My command prompt is at

U:\FSSOX>

What command could I use to find all occurrences of the literal string "sox - sign in"
within folder U:\FSSOX?

I imagine it would be something like:

U:\FSSOX>findstr /i  /m  /U:/FSSOX/:"sox - sign in"  "U:\FSSOX\*.* "

Really MS-DOS?  Or a cmd/command prompt on a Windows workstation?  What version of Windows?  Available tools and syntax varies.  

If you want to use findstr, and you just want the names of the files in which the string occurs, then you're close.  Try...

U:\FSSOX> findstr /i /m /s /c:"sox - sign in" *.*

Open in new window


Here's a good link to all the options on modern versions of findstr.

Hope that helps!
