GZMORE(1)							     GZMORE(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzmore - file perusal filter for crt viewing of compressed	text

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzmore [ name ...	]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Gzmore is a filter	which allows examination of compressed or plain	text
     files one screenful at a time on a	soft-copy terminal.  gzmore works on
     files compressed with compress, pack or gzip, and also on uncompressed
     files.  If	a file does not	exist, gzmore looks for	a file of the same
     name with the addition of a .gz, .z or .Z suffix.

     Gzmore normally pauses after each screenful, printing --More-- at the
     bottom of the screen.  If the user	then types a carriage return, one more
     line is displayed.	 If the	user hits a space, another screenful is
     displayed.	 Other possibilities are enumerated later.

     Gzmore looks in the file /etc/termcap to determine	terminal
     characteristics, and to determine the default window size.	 On a terminal
     capable of	displaying 24 lines, the default window	size is	22 lines.  To
     use a pager other than the	default	more, set environment variable PAGER
     to	the name of the	desired	program, such as less.

     Other sequences which may be typed	when gzmore pauses, and	their effects,
     are as follows (i is an optional integer argument,	defaulting to 1) :

	  display i more lines,	(or another screenful if no argument is	given)

     ^D	  display 11 more lines	(a ``scroll'').	 If i is given,	then the
	  scroll size is set to	i.

     d	  same as ^D (control-D)

     iz	  same as typing a space except	that i,	if present, becomes the	new
	  window size.	Note that the window size reverts back to the default
	  at the end of	the current file.

     is	  skip i lines and print a screenful of	lines

     if	  skip i screenfuls and	print a	screenful of lines

     q or Q
	  quit reading the current file; go on to the next (if any)

     e or q
	  When the prompt --More--(Next	file: file) is printed,	this command
	  causes zmore to exit.

     s	  When the prompt --More--(Next	file: file) is printed,	this command
	  causes zmore to skip the next	file and continue.

     =	  Display the current line number.

	  search for the i-th occurrence of the	regular	expression expr.  If
	  the pattern is not found, zmore goes on to the next file (if any).
	  Otherwise, a screenful is displayed, starting	two lines before the
	  place	where the expression was found.	 The user's erase and kill
	  characters may be used to edit the regular expression.  Erasing back
	  past the first column	cancels	the search command.

     in	  search for the i-th occurrence of the	last regular expression

	  invoke a shell with command. The character `!' in "command" are
	  replaced with	the previous shell command.  The sequence "\!" is
	  replaced by "!".

     :q	or :Q
	  quit reading the current file; go on to the next (if any) (same as q
	  or Q).

     .	  (dot)	repeat the previous command.

     The commands take effect immediately, i.e., it is not necessary to	type a
     carriage return.  Up to the time when the command character itself	is
     given, the	user may hit the line kill character to	cancel the numerical
     argument being formed.  In	addition, the user may hit the erase character
     to	redisplay the --More-- message.

     At	any time when output is	being sent to the terminal, the	user can hit
     the quit key (normally control-\).	 Zmore will stop sending output, and
     will display the usual --More-- prompt.  The user may then	enter one of
     the above commands	in the normal manner.  Unfortunately, some output is
     lost when this is done, due to the	fact that any characters waiting in
     the terminal's output queue are flushed when the quit signal occurs.

     The terminal is set to noecho mode	by this	program	so that	the output can
     be	continuous.  What you type will	thus not show on your terminal,	except
     for the / and !  commands.

     If	the standard output is not a teletype, then gzmore acts	just like
     zcat, except that a header	is printed before each file.
