zfind is a fast file search utility/API for searching within archives
Many times, developers (or even, normal users) run into an issue of searching for a resource that is inside a zip. Worse, that resource is inside a zip which is itself inside ANOTHER zip (i.e. nested archive). Possibly you need to verify whether a particular resource is present in an ear or you want to know part of a file name but don't know which zip/jar on your hard disk contains that class file. zfind solves this problem. zfind is very fast and it works on most common archive/compress files. Apart from GUI and command line, it also provides API support which let's you use it in your java code as a 3rd party library. Thanks for using, and if you find any bug, do post a ticket or discussion topic. I can't fix anything if I don't know the problem :) **Check Wiki for USAGE details
