Try changing the line:

     unzip -ca "$file" content.xml | grep -ql "$1"


     unzip -ca "$file" content.xml | grep -qC 10 "$1"

the "-l" to grep makes it show only the names of files that match, not
the content. The "-C #" gives # lines of context around the match. Or
you could use "-B #" and "-A #" to print # lines of leading and
trailing conext, respectively.

You could also make a script to pull the contents of all the files and
concatenate them in such a way that you can use Writer to do find
inside one big document, but that would be considerably harder. Try
this first.


Disclaimer: I haven't actually tested this, just done a "man grep", but
I think the syntax is right...

Thank you, Don, but that only shows which files contain the 
search string. (It's likely that all files in the list will contain
at least one occurrence of the string.)

That would be a start, but what I am looking for is a means of seeing 
the string as if Writer was showing the file contents, so that I can 
see the surrounding text.

(Equivalent to joining all the doc's into one big file, then doing a 
Find.   Perhaps I shall have to do the joining manually...)
