That would require a exe or com program & I bet someone has made a program that does that (freeware) & fast.
Power Basic makes small exe files.
What I would do thou is make a basic program that can be passed a command line name, it would be slow compared to assembly or C but it would work the way you wanted & search a file for an inputed string.
What I have used for ages is sweep & before that
global, this tiny program feeds all the names or
just the picked names (wild cards) into your program & runs thru all the files thru all the subdirectories for you. I use a batch job to use
the sweep program & remember all the settings.
Sweep only works on one drive at a time.
I also use an whereis program that searches all subdirs & drives & prints out every filename match or no match it finds, but I never never tried to feed thru a basic or batch file & not sure if it can be done.
If you need a program & some examples I can email them to you but I check this BBS before I
read my email which is slow (I may check once or twice a week only or less).
There has got to be a better anwser out there its
just I do not know it.
