Linux here. I'm trying to run some kind of shell-fu command against an arbitrary directory on my file system, and have it spit out all the files (searching recursively) inside that directory that contain at least one instance of a particular (quoted) phrase. So something like this:
someMagicCommand ~/some/path/to/a/dir -phrase "How now brown cow"
You can do this with a simple grep command
grep -rl "how now brown cow" /path/to/dir
