Is that how one interfaces with rarely-used document archives? via groping?
Yes, didn't you know? You should have RTFM:
# man grope

GROPE

NAME

grope, egrope, fgrope, rgrep - print lines matching a pattern in rarely used document archives

SYNOPSIS

grope (options) PATTERN (FILE...)

DESCRIPTION

grope searches the named archives FILEs (or standard input if none are named, or the file name - is given) for lines containing a match to the given PATTERN. By default, grope prints the matching lines.

In addition, three variant programs egrope, fgrep and rgrep are avail- able. egrep is the same as grope -E. fgrope is the same as grope -F. rgrope is the same as grope -r.

BUGS

Backreferences are very slow, and may require exponential time.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
