Grep on catdoc


Hi

I am new to using linux. I am trying to use catdoc grep for a list of phrases on word documents.

The syntax below gives me the matches found in the document but not the file name. Please can anybody help me with the syntax that will show the file name and the matches found.

find . -iname "*.doc" -print0 | while read -d $'\0' file; do catdoc "$file" | grep -i -w -f ~tmp/test.txt; done

Many thanks

This adds a "&& echo ::: $file" to the command:

Code:
find . -iname "*.doc" -print0 | while read -d $'\0' file; do catdoc "$file" | grep -i -w -f ~tmp/test.txt && echo ::: $file; done
