A tool to output archives and compressed files to stdout.
- Grep through multiple archives (of different types) without unpacking them.
- Unpack multiple 7z archives to stdout, ignoring errors (7z will choke on corrupted archives).
- Concatenate multiple archived logfiles into one file.
pip install catarc
You'll need the following binaries, depending on what kinds of archives you wish to extract:
- tar (.tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.xz)
- 7zip (.7z)
- gzip (.gz, .tar.gz)
- bzip2 (.bz2, .tar.bz2)
- xz (.xz, .tar.xz)
- unzip (.zip)
- unrar (.rar)
Note that .tar.* types have two dependencies!
catarc *.7z | grep "something"` catarc one.zip two.rar three.tar.gz | grep "something" catarc access.*.gz > access.log.total
Optionally, you can use the
-s switch to specify a certain filesize requirement for a file to be processed. This specification is in the following format:
You can use any of these combinations, but obviously only one specification per operator. Valid suffixes are
Functionality and behaviour
catarc will attempt to unpack the following types:
When a file is encountered that is none of the above types, catarc will write a warning to stderr and skip the file. If you are missing a dependency, catarc will tell you so.
No known bugs. If you find any, please do report them.
