NAME

ssgrep - search spreadsheets for strings

 

SYNOPSIS

ssgrep [OPTIONS] [FILES]

 

DESCRIPTION

This manual page briefly documents the ssgrep command.

ssgrep is a command line utility to search for strings in spreadsheets of any format supported by gnumeric. Without any output modifying options, ssgrep prints one line for each match. A match consists of the matching content of a cell or, if the -R option is given, the matching expression result of a cell.

-R, --search-results
