I want to create an Alias for my Terminal to quick-search inside files.
In Ubuntu is was:
alias gre="egrep -rnw ". I used it like that
$ gre 'my search string'.
Now I want this for my local MacBook-Terminal. I found out that I have to use grep only like this
grep -r 'search string' .
How can I add an Alias like the one in Ubuntu?
I think it's something like this:
alias gre="grep -r $theTerminalParameter ."
If I test it in the Terminal:
alias test="grep -r $var ." and check the "content" of that alias with
alias test i get that information:
alias test='grep -r .' so my Variable doesn't appear in the alias.
How can I use an Alias for that task.
