Hello experts,

i've spent way toooo much time looking up on internet : how to save to a file the vimgrep result.
i'm working on

on vim i know we can use :[range lines]w filename.tosave
this ^ is working smoothly.  

we can also use  :vimgrep "whatimlookingfor" % | copen
this ^ shows me a beautiful display with contains filename, char, colon.....the line
this is what i'd like to save to a file: ""

but i dont know what to suffix with the following command:
here i'm looking in many files  
:vimgrep "whatimlookingforinmanyfiles" **/* | copen    [???????]

my question:
how can i save what i see with
:vimgrep "whatimlookingforinmanyfiles" **/* | copen    

thank you in advance !
this is something i'd really like to manage ;)
