       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  pattern.   zipgrep  is  a  shell script and requires
       egrep(1) and unzip(1) to function.  Its output is identical to that  of

	      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  sup
	      ported,  as  with any other ZIP archive; just specify the
	      .exe suffix (if any) explicitly.

	      An optional list of archive members to be processed, sep
	      arated  by spaces.  If no member files are specified, all
	      members of the ZIP archive are searched.	Regular expres
	      sions (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 exclamation point or a caret (! or ^)  fol
		     lows  the	left bracket, then the range of charac
		     ters 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 directo
	      ries within the zipfile would be searched.

       All  options  prior  to	the  ZIP archive filename are passed to

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