Find Text in Database Objects (triggers / stored procedures)

By Marts,

I find myself refacoring an existing database which has some inefficient code, like cursors in stored procedures and triggers ...

Wanting to figure out which objects contained this "poor" code, I made myself a little script to list all the objects which contain a search string.

Just change the value that @search is set to and run the script in the database you wish to search.
