BTW: Do you know 'rgrep' ? Ever since I discovered that wonderful utility
grep x/*/* is history for me...

rgrep -rl  <regexp>  <dir>

recursively greps directories. (Later versions of 'grep' also have the 
-r option
but rgrep also allows gives you '-R <filename>' to restrict the search 
to certain
filenames [e.g. use -R '*.h' to grep headers only[).
Perhaps the program I most often use these days ;-)
