In fact, many 60 | grep Pocket Reference older virus scanners did more or less this very thing by searching for unique binary strings in files against a list of known bad hexadecimal signatures. Many buffer overflows or exploit payloads are written in C, and it is typical to write out each hexadecimal digit in C with the \x escape. For instance, take the following buffer overflow exploit payload: "\xeb\x17\x5e\x89\x76\x08\x31\xc0\x88\x46 \x07\x89\x46\x0c\xb0\x0b\x89\xf3\x8d\x4e \x08\x31\xd2\xcd\x80\xe8\xe4\xff\xff\xff \x2f\x62\x69\x6e\x2f\x73\x68\x58"; It may be more advantageous to write the regular expression in the same way instead of typing out the entire hexadecimal string, if for no other reason than to allow for copying and pasting from exploit code.

The / metacharacter can also be used for backreference (a reference to a previous pattern given to PCRE). For instance, /1 is a backreference to the first pattern in a list, not octal character 1. To be free of ambiguity, the easiest way is to specify the octal character as a three-digit number. Up to 777 is permitted in UTF-8 mode. All single-digit numbers given after the slash are interpreted as a backreference, and if there have been more than XX patterns, then \XX is interpreted as a backreference as well.

Note that this uses the relative (not absolute) paths and filenames. -h, --no-filename grep -h pattern * The opposite of -H. When more than one file is involved, it suppresses printing the filename before each output. It is the default when only one file or standard input is involved. This is useful for suppressing filenames when searching entire directories. gz | grep --label=LABEL pattern When the input is taken from standard input (for instance, when the output of another file is redirected into grep), the --label option will prefix the line with LABEL.
