Just realized that :grep command excludes files that are actually links from search.
(How) is it possible to make it go in these too??

Looking through the docs found 2 seemingly relevant settings, at least those have something to do with links :)


tried both with no success, please advise

vifm Version: 0.10.1

My second thought: that may be defined with grepprg

... and yes, indeed mine was set to ripgrep which ignores symlinks by default

Please feel free to ignore my question
