use find to search through compressed files?
Posted on 2004-09-07
Is it possible? I don't see any option in the man page for this.
I'm looking for an old file on a windows machine with cygwin installed. I tend to compress (and not consistently either, sometimes zip, bzip2, or gzip) old file/directories and lump them all together. I'm sure I have the file somewhere but it is likely compressed in my mess of archives somewhere and I don't want to manually have to search through them all.
