Is there any other way to find a text in a way without grep command from multiple files.

This was asked in one of my interview but I could find a possible solution for this question.


Numerous unix commands incorporate the functionality of grep, allowing a grep-like command to be implemented. Some obvious examples:


awk '/pattern/'


sed -n -e '/pattern/p'


perl -n -e 'print if (/pattern/)'

  • Thank you for response. I think I should try more complex scenarios. – Tanu Jul 31 '19 at 20:33
