    I'm trying to build a internal doc search.  And it would great if there was some sort of grep ability.  So I could saw "wvGrep Variable foo.doc" and see the results returned. 

    Right now I see the only option as a two step process of converting a file to text the searching though the text file.

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciate.

    • Although far from ideal, perhaps the following will suffice?

      strings foo.doc | grep Variable

      thanks for the suggestion but I can't get anything out of it but the header information when I use that.
