I would like to search all the files stored on a MAC (from a given base folder and all its subfolders) for a specific text string. I think the information that I am looking for was stored in a compressed archive - eg such as one created by stuffit
I am not sure of what programs created the files stored within the archive. At this point, what I would like to do is have the program treat the files as a binary object and then just search through them for the target string.
I looked at the manual for Stuffit ( now owned by smithmicro ) and did not see that it had an option to look within the body of the file for specific text. I just saw an option to look within file names - and that will not solve my problem.
What I would like as an answer would be:
1. Name of the program and a link to the website where I can obtain the program.
2. Link to review(s) or article discussing the programs text search capabilities.
3. Any comments as to your actual experience with the program.
I am also interested in PC's - but the focus of this problem is for MAC.
Thanks for your help.
