Hi All,

I want to search a particular text in set of class files unjarred from different jars. Can anyone suggest if there is any such kind of tool? I need something likes windows search where in I place all class files which I want to search in a folder and then I give the text to be searched. Please do let me know if anything like this exists.


Thanks in advance.

Bye

grep


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

Have you tried googling for grep+UI?

Many advanced text editors can do this for you. I tried UltraEdit and Notepad++, both of them found text within .class files.
