Depends on what you're scripting with, what OS you're running on, and what you want to do with the output. If you're doing a batch file or another script that will run at a command line, you can use the FIND command. An example could be:

@echo off
cls
FIND C:\MYFILE.TXT "CHRISTOPHER"
IF %ERRORLEVEL% == 0 GOTO FOUND
echo Sorry, couldn't find CHRISTOPHER in C:\MYFILE.TXT
goto end

:FOUND
echo Found CHRISTOPHER in C:\MYFILE.TXT!

:end

If you're using the SMS Installer, there is the script item that will read a file, and the one that can parse a string variable that would do the trick. The list goes on.

Find.exe or FindStr.exe will work.
