I have a Query regarding Grep utility.
How can i search for special characters like
New line and Tab ??
For example I have a file with contents as:
XYZ=    "abc"        ( the space after equal to sign is actually a Tab character)
So what will be the grammer for searching the complete string ??
I have tried:
grep -iw "XYZ[ ]*=[ ]*\"abc\""
This does not work.
Kindly sent the exact grammar that should be used.
