I was looking for a way to query all (php) files which did have my name (fincken) somewhere AND a “TODO” comment somewhere.

I posted my question on stackexchange yesterday:

Getting a list of files:
[code:1:c58f77edd5]grep -Rl –include=”*php” “TODO” * | xargs grep -il “fincken”[/code:1:c58f77edd5]

Getting a list of files with every line of code having TODO in it:
[code:1:c58f77edd5]find -name ‘*.php’ | xargs grep -il ‘fincken’ | xargs grep -il ‘todo’ |xargs grep -in -e ‘todo’ -e ‘fincken'[/code:1:c58f77edd5]
