Not sure where it was the calendar or something else that suddenly
made my tying go South. maybe both. --oh, yes, i still need to
buy a new clicky kybd. but that won't help with the script i
back hen i worked from cray reseach in WI, a shell /bin/sh wizard cooked
up what i wanted in minutes. i have lost in in the 20+ years so
maybe some shell or perl guru can help me.
I'm looking for a script that takes on arg and lets me vi/vim into
the r esults. Let's say that I'm looking for the string 201107 in
a slew of files. the script find it with grep---not grep -w, just
grep. collect es the filenames and lines (grep -n) and saves then
temporarily, then points vim or vi at each file+linenumbr and execs
it for me. the fewer keystrokes, the better.
can anybody help me?
