I would like to write a simple script that would use grep to search through a list of files. The current code looks something similar to this:
a= file1.txt b= file2.txt for do grep '$a.*$b' /root/listoffiles/*php >> found.txt
file2 are both word lists. So this would search through the destination having multiple criteria. For example
$a could be "hello" and
$b "world" or the second line could be "red" and "tshirt". If it finds anything with two matching criteria then it would just save it into the file. The loop that I am using is not working and not efficient enough. I would like to get only the results for meeting criteria. Any suggestions?
