GZGREP(1)							     GZGREP(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzgrep - search possibly compressed files for a regular expression

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzgrep [ grep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Gzgrep is used to invoke the grep on compress'ed or gzip'ed files.	All
     options specified are passed directly to grep. If no file is specified,
     then the standard input is	decompressed if	necessary and fed to grep.
     Otherwise the given files are uncompressed	if necessary and fed to	grep.

     If	gzgrep is invoked as gzegrep or	gzfgrep	then egrep or fgrep is used
     instead of	grep. If the GREP environment variable is set, gzgrep uses it
     as	the grep program to be invoked.	For example:

	 for sh:  GREP=fgrep  gzgrep string files
	 for csh: (setenv GREP fgrep; gzgrep string files)
