ZIPGREP(1L)                                                        ZIPGREP(1L)



NAME
       zipgrep - search files in a ZIP archive for lines matching a pattern

SYNOPSIS
       zipgrep [egrep_options] pattern file[.zip] [file(s) ...]  [-x xfile(s) ...]

DESCRIPTION
       zipgrep  will  search  files within a ZIP archive for lines matching the given string or pattern.  zipgrep is a
       shell script and requires egrep(1) and unzip(1L) to function.  Its output is identical to that of egrep(1).

ARGUMENTS
       pattern
              The pattern to be located within a ZIP archive.  Any string or  regular  expression  accepted  by
              egrep(1)  may  be  used.   file[.zip] Path of the ZIP archive.  (Wildcard expressions for the ZIP
              archive name are not supported.)  If the literal filename  is  not  found,  the  suffix  .zip  is
              appended.  Note that self-extracting ZIP files are supported, as with any other ZIP archive; just
              specify the .exe suffix (if any) explicitly.

       [file(s)]
              An optional list of archive members to be processed, separated by spaces.  If no member files are
              specified,  all  members of the ZIP archive are searched.  Regular expressions (wildcards) may be
              used to match multiple members:

              *      matches a sequence of 0 or more characters

              ?      matches exactly 1 character

              [...]  matches any single character found inside the brackets; ranges are specified by  a  begin-
                     ning  character,  a  hyphen,  and an ending character.  If an exclamation point or a caret
                     ('!' or '^') follows the left bracket, then the range of characters within the brackets is
                     complemented  (that is, anything except the characters inside the brackets is considered a
                     match).

              (Be sure to quote any character that might otherwise be interpreted or modified by the  operating
              system.)

       [-x xfile(s)]
              An  optional  list  of archive members to be excluded from processing.  Since wildcard characters
              match directory separators ('/'), this option may be used to exclude any files that are in subdi-
              rectories.   For  example,  ''zipgrep  grumpy  foo  *.[ch]  -x  */*'' would search for the string
              ''grumpy'' in all C source files in the main directory of the ''foo'' archive, but  none  in  any
              subdirectories.   Without the -x option, all C source files in all directories within the zipfile
              would be searched.

OPTIONS
       All options prior to the ZIP archive filename are passed to egrep(1).
