Hi,

I Ubuntu or any other linux distribution you can use the grep command to file in files in all directories.

You can use the grep command to find all files containing a given text.

Here is example code:

grep -rn "India"

Above command will find all the file containing this text. I will find in all the files/directories from the current directory.

Thanks
