How about trying: grep arch4 *
grep arch4 /*
grep arch4 /*/*
etc. etc.

I'm just learning about grep but this seems to work for me.
Thanks!

it only searches the root and nothing below that. I tried
grep "arch4" /*
/*/* /*/*/* /*/*/*/*
ant it stopped with an error arguments two long or
something.

I was hoping to find the deffinition files that have the
size and pixel
lenth of the printer page layoust so I could change them to
a custom setting.
