You could just use some silly python hacks I've put together for exactly
I call this "loccp" for looking for specified strings within *.cpp files
import sys , os
val = sys.argv
fs = '`find . -name "*.cpp"`'
gs = 'grep -i ' + val + ' ' + fs
print 'Executing.. \n ',gs
I also have loch (look in *.h files) and locc (for *.c files). These
little commands have been incredibally useful.
These search recursively from the current directory and do a case
insensitive search with the specified files. This is an extremely useful
way of stealing code from other parts of abi and to learn how different
functions and classes work.
