It may sound like I'm asking the same thing as this question, but I have different requirements. This is an example of my filesystem:
/code/tools/ contain subdirectories for multiple projects. I work almost exclusively in the dev branches of
/code/public/, and often I want to search for a text string in those directories along with
/code/tools/ (which has no branches). In these instances I have to do three separate commands:
$ grep -r "some string" /code/internal/dev/ $ grep -r "some string" /code/public/dev/ $ grep -r "some string" /code/tools/
I'd like to know if there's a single command to do this. If not, I would most likely need to write a simple bash script.
