I don't seem to be able to get the grep I have ( 2.4.2-3) to search recursively. The man page gives a -r option for this, and this is what I've always used with my previous distro. Is there a bug? Or am I using it incorrectly? grep -r text *.htm only finds text in the current directory, but this is how I've always used it for recursive work. Thanks, - Richard.
