hello I'm attempting to learn how to use the CLI with GNOME Ubuntu and am working through some tutorials but grep doesn't seem to be working.
After typing "grep stuff" in a directory containing a file called "stuff" the cursor goes to a new blank line and just flashes until I have to end it.
Anyone know what could be happening here? Find doesn't seem to do much either!
below is what occurs
pete@pete-laptop:~$ cd ~
bashrc examples.desktop Music podsleuth smgTkLib
Calibre Library firefox nano.save Public stuff
Desktop LocalApps package_list.txt README Templates
Documents mary1 Pictures shared Videos
Downloads mary2.txt Podcasts smgLib
pete@pete-laptop:~$ grep mary1
+ Stopped grep --color=auto mary1
pete@pete-laptop:~$ grep stuff
+ Stopped grep --color=auto stuff
