Hi there;

I just installed cygwin in my W7-64 bit to search for a text in a html file in a folder. What is the command for this?

or is there any other tool to do a fast search for a text folder having html files in it?

Regards.

cygwing: "... provides a Linux-like environment to execute your commands "

you can run bash commands on it, just try basic commands like: ls, mv, etc.

for searching word from a file you can use grep command.
