Request: Open a file, read it, print matching lines. Workflow. in Share your Workflows Posted July 9, 2013 I’ve seen this misconception a number of times already, so I’d like to first clear that you do not need to make your workflows in python. Okay. I've just looked up "search a textfile and display search results in a new textfile" and the linked article was the most accurate result, as far as I can estimate the accuracy of an article on that topic. Let me know if it fits your needs. It just works. Thank you. I guess I am going to use it with Geektool on my desktop. Cheers!
