Windows command prompt: find command

Self-tutoring about Windows: the tutor mentions its find command.

Li|U|nix users love grep, which finds lines in a file that contain a certain string. Does Windows command prompt have a similar utility?

The answer is yes:

find /n “detail” file0.txt

will find the lines in file0.txt that contain the word “detail”, and output them with line numbers.

Neat, eh?
