comment Test for a particular file format
thanks, i should have checked manpages. But unfortunately this doesn't work for the file I have uploaded in the linked question. file -k tmp still shows only ASCII Pascal program text as the only matching format whereas I expect it to match it with ASCII English Text.

comment Literally grep the only word in a line
thanks, i ll accept this in 10 mins. so there is no generalized way to treat some part of pattern as regex and some part as literal, is it?
