I have a project with a Makefile but not really a C or C++ project. I was trying to search for a string within all files in the project and I was surprised to find that the search didn't find the string in the Makefile. Suppose I rename the Makefile to have an extension, it works fine. Am I doing something wrong?

Version details:

Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers

Version: Oxygen Release (4.7.0)
Build id: 20170620-1800

A CDT project has a .cproject file.

You may need to ensure:
1) the file name pattern is '*'
2) Derived resources has been selected
3) the Scope includes the project to be searched.

With the following File Search
index.php/fa/29900/0/

Had the following result:
index.php/fa/29901/0/

The working set selects the Hello project.
The makefile was not searched until Derived resources was selected.

I did have the pattern as '*.*' which returns all files but with an extension. My fault. Thanks a lot David for the detailed reply.
