The allgrep command is a Decipher-only alternative to the standard Unix grep command. allgrep allows you to quickly search all survey-specific files on a server for specific text.

Running the Command

To run allgrep , first specify the command, then the file name, then the text you are looking for:


For example, if you wanted to find every survey with the label “Q1”, you would run the following:

allgrep survey.xml "Q1"

The output would be every survey directory containing a "Q1", along with the line on which that "Q1" was located.

Note: allgrep works on any survey-specific file, like survey.xml, reports.json, and nstyles.
