LXer: Using Grep-Like Commands for Non-Text Files

Published at LXer:

In the previous article, I showed how to use the grep command, which is great at finding text files that contain a string or pattern. The idea of directly searching in a "grep-like" way is so useful that there are additional commands to let you search right into PDF documents and handle XML files more naturally. Things do not stop there, as you could consider raw network traffic a collection of data that you want to "grep" for information, too.
