Boolean Options

The following options can appear as often as necessary to express the pattern to locate:


--and, --or, --not, -(, -)

Further, the -r/--revision option may be specified multiple times in order to scan multiple trees. If the same file matches in more than one tree, only the first result is reported, prefixed by the revision name it was found under.


Look for a line that has '#define' and either 'MAX_PATH or 'PATH_MAX':

repo grep -e '#define' --and -\( -e MAX_PATH -e PATH_MAX \)

Look for a line that has 'NODE' or 'Unexpected' in files that contain a line that matches both expressions:

repo grep --all-match -e NODE -e Unexpected
