Find regular expression patterns in tar archive files. More information:

  • Search for a pattern within one or more tar archives:

ptargrep "{{search_pattern}}" {{path/to/file1 path/to/file2 ...}}

  • Extract to the current directory using the basename of the file from the archive:

ptargrep --basename "{{search_pattern}}" {{path/to/file}}

  • Search for a case-insensitive pattern matching within a tar archive:

ptargrep --ignore-case "{{search_pattern}}" {{path/to/file}}
