findstr as alternative for recursive grep search

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/04/27

Usually I use the old Borland grep.exe that still ships with Delphi. Too bad it is 16-bit app which does not recognise Unicode.

FindStr does. Though much slower and with limited regular expression capabilities, can do recursive searches too:

findstr /spin /c:"string to find" *.*

The /spin is a shortcut for these case insensitive command-line options (the full list of possible options is below):

  /S         Searches for matching files in the current directory and all
  /I         Specifies that the search is not to be case-sensitive.
  /N         Prints the line number before each line that matches.
  /P         Skip files with non-printable characters.

Sometimes I leave out the /P to include binary files.
