💡 Command Line Tips

List all files that does not contain a given string in the current directory:

grep -RiL <string> .

If you want to search only in the current directory, not the subdirectories, replace the “.” with *

grep -iL -d skip LHB *

Here, the option -d skips directory and thus avoids printing some error messages due to grep working on directory names.
