    On Windows; Microsoft WebMatrix allows you to perform a search for specific strings of text in the entire WordPress install. (it also runs WordPress/PHP/MySQL locally on your PC – quite a useful app)

    Also Windows: You can use FindStringInDirectory – an app I actually wrote myself.

    Adobe Dreamweaver can do this too, but it’s tricky to set up. It runs on Mac & Windows, which you probably know… It’s also rather pricey.

    Oh; and on Linux nothing beats Grep and a well formed regular expression.

    tHANKS A lot bro! 🙂
