Today I found a typo in some docs: “account” was misspelled as “accuont.” I want to find that in the repository. As a bash user, I tried
but of course that command is not found in PowerShell.
It took me a while to find the equivalent so here it is:
Select-String -Path .\**\*.md -Pattern accuont
You need to list the fileglob or else it’ll search binary files and mess up your screen.
Comma-separated lists work for both globs and patterns. Regex strings work in patterns.
