(TIL) Nix: Grep For Multiple Patterns

less than 1 minute read

You can use the -e flag with the grep command to search for a pattern. Additionally, you can use multiple -e flags to search for multiple patterns. For instance, if you want to search for occurrences of ruby and clojure in a README.md file, use the following command:

grep -e ruby -e clojure README.md

See man grep for more details.
