From SQL, you can use the QCMDEXC stored procedure to run a command ... in this case, QShell 'grep ...'  and ">" to pipe the output of grep into a temporary file in the IFS.
Then, use the SQL IFS functions to scan the results of the grep ... that should be much easier than processing the "raw data" directly in SQL, IMHO.
Unix is all about handy little tools that can be piped together to do stuff ...

I know how to use grep and all, this is not another chapter in that unpublished rag, for my purposes an sql solution serves me more directly, I wanted to avoid a command line solution.

As opposed to using "grep"?

The only sensible way to do it, and if you are on IBM i and not planning to
off-platform, it's half-past time to learn grep sed tr etc. and your basic
pipeline tools.

Subject: Find string in multiple it's files using sql services

I have XML files in a folder, I want to see which ones have a certain
value in them, such as an account code. I tried ifs_object_statistics with
start_path_name ==> set, joined to ifs_read, the path_name from
ifs_object_statistics in path_name ==>.
