I have a MSSQL database dump I'm trying to grep through. However, grep does not seem to work on it, at all. Here is a snippet of the file.
... ALTER DATABASE [Documents] SET RECURSIVE_TRIGGERS OFF GO ALTER DATABASE [Documents] SET DISABLE_BROKER GO ALTER DATABASE [Documents] SET AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS_ASYNC OFF ...
However when I do a grep on it I get nada.
$ cat Documents.sql | grep -i 'alter' $ <nothing> $ cat Documents.sql | grep -i 'go' $ <nothing>
For giggles I created another document 'tempfile' with:
$ cat tempfile alter Alter ALTER $
And ran the same grep on it:
$ cat tempfile | grep -i 'alter' alter Alter ALTER
Thoughts on why grep wouldn't work on certain files? Concerns me that when I have to grep through a bunch of stuff to find a small nugget, it 'may' be missing something. Thoughts?
