Hi, Thanks for this and I'll try it shortly. Os it basically killing the entire process tree when I do control + c or is something else going on? It is great you provided an answer, but, I'm trying to get a deeper understanding of Linux so I can understand why these things happen the way they do!

What does the -a do? It seems to be depreciated / doesn't work with it but the command works with it removed. I can't seem to find reference in a few versions of man... but, I have seen it in so many examples - what does it do?

comment Grep Regex match not returning result as expected
@AndreaCorbellini - I fully understand that, and as I said, it was the same Grep version on both machines, it suddenly started working after doing an update - I am certain it was something shell or dependency related, I am just not sure what and that is what I would like to know!

I understand what you are saying and will continue to do it in quotes, however, the moment that I perform an update on the older machines, it works... I really want an explanation on what update could have caused a syntax change when Grep itself remains the same version.
