Thank you very much!

Works fine now and is nice enough to display in a field :-)


        grep, egrep, fgrep - print lines matching a pattern

        grep [options] PATTERN [FILE...]
        grep [options] [-e PATTERN | -f FILE] [FILE...]

        Grep  searches the named input FILEs (or standard input if no  
files are
        named, or the file name - is given) for lines containing a  
match to the
        given PATTERN.  By default, grep prints the matching lines.

        In addition, two variant programs egrep and fgrep are  
available.  Egrep
        is the same as grep -E.  Fgrep is the same as grep -F
