search multiple string from a directory



  • hi,
    I have multiple XML files in a directory, I need to search two particular tags combination to be present in the same file from that directory.
    the two tags which i am searching are <menu id> and <maxcount>

    xml file will be like this below,
    <menu id>
    <some tags>
    </some tags>
    <maxcount></maxcount>
    </menu>
    i tried using this regular expression <menuid>|<maxcount> in findwhat i am getting the files with these combination but along with these others file having <menuid> or <maxcount> are also coming in search hits…but i wanted to search only these combination to be found in a file.
