Find out the full referrer (with the shell)

Are you fed up with Google Analytics not showing the full referrer url and just showing something like I also do, I love to know who's linking me (yeah I'm curious!).

My hosting compresses access_logs which reach a certain size, so when I downloaded the access logs files I get a bunch of .gz files which I'm not going to manually uncompress... So I went to the terminal and once in the folder where the log files are, I type

find . -name "*.gz" -exec gunzip {} \;
Now I have lots of files like access_log.20060929, access_log.20060930, etc. For searching let's say a referrer called which I see in GA, I do:
cat * | grep
and that will return you the apache log lines where the term appears.

For example: - - [26/Sep/2006:11:27:47 +0000] "GET /index.php HTTP/1.1" 200 9562 "" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; es-ES; rv: Gecko/20060909 Firefox/"
It's a bit of brute force approach as it's searching in all the files (now that I realize it's even searching in the compressed files since I didn't remove they yet, haha!). But it's very fast even though!

With a bit more of love this could be a rudimentary stats script but I'm not that much into shell scripting (and I'm trying to force myself into really learning regular expressions to do that stats script with ruby instead). Oh and I forgot to say this works for any decent shell - linux, mac... I think I also could do it with a windows box with unxutils installed (so that you get the funky stuff like grep, find, cat, etc).
