LXer: Bash Tricks II: Repetitive tasks on files

Published at LXer:

Anyway, I had already written a piece on repetitive tasks before. Yesterday I had to do a thing that required another set of repetitive tricks. I had to find a file that could be included in a number (huge number) of compressed files. Some where named .tar.gz, others where tgz. I didn't want to spend the next month checking each compressed file to see if my target file was there. So I made a one-liner that did the whole thing for me.
