Topic "Searching for a text string among files on remote"

Author Message


Hi, Is there any way that I can ask WinSCP to search all the files on a remote station (in the current displayed directory, with or without any filename filter in operation) for a specified text string, and to display both the filename and the complete line of text that is matched. I am not familiar with Linux commands, but the MSDOS equivalent would be

FIND "text string" path:filename*.*

Many thanks
