I am searching for a word, in this case "hehe" that is located in the file findTest
by using grep, but when i initiate the search:
grep -r "hehe"
grep -lr "hehe"
it starts but after 5 min waiting nothing happens, even if i am in the same directory as the file. the only way i get a results straight away is being in the same directory and typing:
grep "hehe" findTest
Are their any other ways to search for a word? even if not in the same directory.
