It would be great if ack automatically searched in compressed files.

In Nov 2008, a thread on the ack-users mailing list discussed searching inside compressed files. Has any progress been made on that?


Nope, but hey, patches welcome. You've got all the code right here.


This will be possible when ack 2 gets plugin support.
