UltraEdit supports a command-line method of searching in files with the -f flag. So, if you want to search a file for a string using the command line, simply open a DOS prompt and type:

uedit32 [file name] -f[search string]

UltraEdit will search for the [search string].

For instance, if you want to search "c:\temp\test.txt" for "hello world", type the following:

uedit32 c:\temp\test.txt -fhello world

Command line
