Need a expert advice

I have few of the PF's in a given library.  Want to read the data of each file to check wither a given word "MYLIB" exist in any of the field data.

Is there any way?  I know we can write a utility program to read all the files and scan for the word but it will take a lot of time.

Similar like DSPPFM and then search for the word  and put in a outfile.
