NAME

zless – file perusal filter for crt viewing of compressed text
 

SYNOPSIS

zless

[ name ... ]
 

DESCRIPTION

Zless

is a filter which allows examination of compressed or plain text files
one screenful at a time on a soft-copy terminal. It is the equivalent of
setting the environment variable LESSOPEN to ‘|gzip -cdfq — %s’,
and the environment variable LESSMETACHARS to

and then running
less.

However, enough people seem to think that having the
command
zless

available is important to be worth providing it.

BUGS

Zless

does not work with compressed data that is piped to it via standard
input; it requires that input files be specified as arguments.
