This is similar to grep in Unix. Recursive search. Ignore certain files and directories.

Example 1: Do the following search:
(a) Root directory is 'dlog'.
(b) Include all subdirectories under 'dlog'.
(c) Search for all files.
(d) Include any line that has the word 'TODO' in it. Case-sensitive.
>> searchtext('dlog', 'TODO', '', 1);
OR
>> searchtext('dlog', '*', '', '*', '', 'TODO', '', 1);

Do 'help searchtext" to see all examples.

The zipfile contains 3 files:
searchtext.m
searchfile.m
searchdir.m

All 3 files are fully documented in H1.
