Really useful way to combine less and grep while browsing log files.
I can't figure out how to make it into a true oneliner so paste it into a script file called lgrep:
lgrep searchfor file1 [file2 file3]
Advanced example (grep for an Exception in logfiles that starts with qc):
lgrep Exception $(find . -name "qc*.log")
