Bash Question

How do I search a word in Shell Script (Bash)?

I need to search the string "Linux" in a web page, first in case-sensitive, sencond in case-insensitive.

Well, my search will be in

I made the bellow code, but it is not return every words "Linux".

echo Linux: $(grep -wc "Linux" ~/workspace/ep-exercicios/m1/e2/intro-linux.html)

For example, my code return 405 words, but has 447.

How do it?


grep counts matching lines, so lines with multiple matches are counted only once.

echo "Linux Linux Linux" | grep -woc Linux

You could use the -o flag to generate one line per match, then wc -l to count

echo "Linux Linux Linux" | grep -o Linux | wc -l
