  • Ever done a find to get content and been messed up by .git, .svn, .hg or the like spamming your results? Did you really want to grep over every copy of the file that existed in your git history? Replace: grep -r PATTERN . with: grep PATTERN -- $(have_here) or if you really have too many files to put in one argv: have_here | xargs grep PATTERN --

    function have_here { find "${@:-.}" -type d \( -name .git -o -name .svn -o -name .bzr -o -name CVS -o -name .hg -o -name __pycache__ \) -prune -o -type f -print; }
