       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 ar-
	      chive.   (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.

	      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

	      *      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  charac-
		     ter.   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 modi-
	      fied 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, ``zip-
	      grep 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 direc-
	      tories 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), zip-
