Since you are on a Red Hat machine anyway, you can save yourself a lot of time just by using 'zgrep'.

We're not surrounded, we're in a target-rich environment!

    Thanks for the reply. zgrep works great on the command line, but how do I get it to work within my script? Could I do the following: (I would try it but don't have access to the system right now)
    $grep = /something/; $gzfile = file.gz; open OUTPUT "zgrep $grep $gzfile |";
