Description Pariksheet Nanda 2012-12-12 14:12:20 UTC
qgrep should default to searching multiple arguments anywhere in a file.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Run `grep cmake-utils swig`
Actual Results:  
No result is found

Expected Results:  
qgrep should search for both search terms in the file such as:
grep -rl 'cmake-utils' --include '*.ebuild' /usr/portage | xargs grep -l 'swig'

Ok, I see what you want, but grep doesn't support this behaviour either.  Instead, it allows you to use alternatives in your regex argument, e.g. grep -E '(a|b)'.  Since qgrep supports regexes, you can just do the same.

In your scenario:

qgrep -x '(cmake-utils|swig)'
