In this example, O-Matrix will search for the string kalman in files that have the *.oms extension. Files in the directory c:\omwin and all directories below that directory will be searched. In addition, files that have been included since the previous clear command will also be searched. Matching text must have the same case as kalman, for example, Kalman would not constitute matching text.
