query related to grep

Hi All,

The result for 'grep "cert_codes" /develop/sales/appl.srce/*.4gl' command will be saved at aa.txt

Code:
grep "cert_codes" /develop/sales/appl.srce/*.4gl >aa.txt

But I am not sure, whether, all result stored in .txt file in case of multi-line result.

Please revert back if anybody has solution.
Thanks Smilie

The "grep" command will display all lines matching string.

Yes each line matching "cert_codes" will be stored in aa.txt.
But multi lines will not be grepped .Check example given below, here even though it's a multi line where 'robert' appears only robert was grepped and 'bob' missed out.

Is this what you were looking for ?

$> cat test.sh
ary=("robert" \
" bob")
for a in ${ary[@]}
do
echo $a
done

$> grep robert test.sh
ary=("robert" \
