Windows 10, Emacs 25, Helm I want to find exact text "data autoupdate" in all files in some folder in my Android Git project.

So I use command

M-x helm-grep-do-git-grep

And input text "data autoupdate"

Here result:

enter image description here

As you can see it find 4 candiates. But I not need first candidate. I need exact matches. So the candidates must be 3.

How I can do this?

Search for :

data\ autoupdate

Then it would only return rows where "data" is immediately followed by a space and then "autoupdate"

  • Not help. If I use "data\ autoupdate" the result is zero candidates. Commented Aug 14, 2018 at 13:35
