Searching Companion Files

This little ditty (there are no large ditties) looks for a file in the same directory as another file, and then searches that file for the string “desc”, using glark. Note that this is in Z shell.

% for i in **/foo.xml; do n=`dirname $i`/bar.txt; glark --label=$n desc $n; done
