    Question Search Program.

    Does anyone know how I would be able to make a search program? The kind that searches for files on your hard drive containing specific text? I am not really asking for the script, just how to do it. Thanks, August.

    * enumerate the files you want to search (it's in the FAQ)
    * open each file and search for the "specific text"
