Just specify ".../*" on the command line if you want it to search all
subdirectories for all files. ("..." means go through all subdirectories
recursively, this is the standard way of filename globbing in DJGPP (and
GNU tools I think) (Maybe it's even the POSIX standard, who can keep track
of what belongs to what standard in these days anyway) But it should work
for GREP anyway I think!
