The grep -i option can perform case insensitive matching. We can use the grep -i option to ignore case.
➜ ~ grep -i "keyword" file
- -i, –ignore-case
Perform case insensitive matching. By default, grep is case sensitive.

In the following grep example, we use the grep -i option and -R option to search for keywords in a directory without case-sensitivity.
