 +====== Grep with AND ======
  
 +You can use grep to search for any line from any file in the current path that contains one word and another word.  Here's how.
 +
 +  grep -Ers '​cpage.*gallery'​ ./
 +  ​
 +This uses the //-E// command line argument to indicate that our search string is a regular expression. ​ Then, we can use "​.*"​ to indicate look for everything. ​ As a result, the above example will look for any line that includes the string '​cpage'​ followed by anything and then followed by '​gallery'​. ​ The -r switch makes it recursive and the -s switch makes it suppress errors such as 'No file or directory.'​
