10.4: Finder searches fail for Spotlight-excluded drives
Authored by: fracai on Jun 17, '05 11:59:38AM

I assume you mean something like
find <search terms, etc> | xargs grep
or something

your friend here is -print0 as a find option and -0 as a xargs option
this will print matching files seperated by a null character and will set xargs to seperate input by null characters instead of returns and spaces

find <search terms, etc> -print0 | xargs -0 grep
