Is there a way to make grep output "words" from files that match the search expression?
If I want to find all the instances of, say, "th" in a number of files, I can do:
grep "th" *
but the output will be something like (bold is by me);
some-text-file : the cat sat on the mat some-other-text-file : the quick brown fox yet-another-text-file : i hope this explains it thoroughly
What I want it to output, using the same search, is:
the the the this thoroughly
Is this possible using grep? Or using another combination of tools?
