Re: bash, find | xargs grep
> I've been doing "find | xargs grep" types of things
Bob, I don't know the source of your trouble, but as a workaround consider
running grep -r instead of find | xargs grep. In many cases it's equivalent
or almost as good, and it probably will avoid all of the forking that's
causing trouble for you. A.
