    Question help! grep -r -i "aaa" *.f90 does not do what I want

    I hope it can recursively look for aaa in all *.f90 files in all the subsequent directories, but it complains

    grep: *.f90: No such file or directory

    Any idea why this happens? Thanks,

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Do this instead:
    find . -type f -iname '*.f90' -exec grep --with-filename -i "aaa" {} \;
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
