I wrote diotalevi's grep. It's one distinguishing feature is automatically looking inside tarballs and zip files. I find that's really common for me. It does a dirt simple look at the file extension and opens .tgz/.zip/.whatever using the streaming abilities of archive extraction programs. The code isn't sexy and it isn't even good but it does do a pretty good enough job. It'd be possible to do a much better job given a few minutes and the interest. I'd use ack immediately if it got this feature.

sub open_file_harder { my ($filename) = @_; return if not defined $filename; if ( my ($extension) = $filename =~ /(\.[^.]+)\z/mx ) { my @readers = ( [ qr/\.t(?:ar\.)?gz\z/ => qw( gzcat ), $filename ], [ qr/\.zip\z/, => qw( unzip -p ), $filename ], [ qr/\.Z\z/ => qw( zcat ), $filename ], [ qr/\.gz\z/ => qw( gzcat ), $filename ], [ qr/\.bz2\z/ => qw( bzcat ), $filename ], ); for my $reader (@readers) { my ( $pattern, @command ) = @{$reader}; if ( $extension =~ $pattern ) { open3( undef, my $fh, undef, @command ); return $fh; } } } open my $fh, '<', $filename or die "Couldn't open $filename: $!"; return $fh; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
