Re: [dev][dmenu] filter files with grep but print corresponding urls?

Something a bit like this?

find=$(dmenu < /dev/null)
for f in *
  if grep -qi $find $f
  then echo $f
done | dmenu

I don't know how/what the format is internally for each file, but it won't be
difficult to filter the site name + url from the file using an awk and/or sed
tag team inside the if block.
