this should do it:

string $attributeName = "NAME_OF_ATTRIBUTE";
string $allObjects[] = `ls`;

for($obj in $allObjects){
if(`attributeQuery -n $obj -ex $attributeName`){
print ($obj +"\n");

just replace the NAME_OF_ATTRIBUTE with whatever the correct attribute you are searching for.. it will print out the name of the objects that match.. right now all objects in the scene are checked, but you narrow that down by modifying the "ls" command if you have a specific type of object or selection..

good luck
