slocate and its non-secure partner, locate are, I believe, RedHat/Fedora
specific utilities.  There's a program that runs out of cron that indexes
the filenames on the machine, and once that db exists, will quickly tell
you what files and/or directories contain a particular string.

I've never seen it on an AIX or HP/UX machine, and all my Linux boxen are
RedHat variants.
