ZIPGREP(1)                           General Commands Manual                           ZIPGREP(1)

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

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

       zipgrep will search files within a ZIP archive for lines matching the given string or pat‐
       tern.  zipgrep is a shell script and requires egrep(1) and unzip(1) to function.  Its out‐
       put is identical to that of egrep(1).

              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)

              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 beginning character, a hyphen, and an ending character.  If an exclama‐
                     tion 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  subdirectories.   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.

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

       egrep(1), unzip(1), zip(1), funzip(1), zipcloak(1), zipinfo(1), zipnote(1), zipsplit(1)
