NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     zmore - view compressed files on a CRT

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     zmore [flags] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     zmore is a filter that allows  the  viewing  of  files  compressed with Lempel-Ziv
  encoding.   Such  files  generally  have a ``Z'' or
``gz'' extension
     (both the compress(1) and gzip(1)  formats  are  supported).
Any flags that
     are  specified  are  passed  to  the  user's preferred PAGER
(which is
     /usr/bin/more by default).

     When multiple files are specified, zmore will pause  at  the
end of each
     file and present the following prompt to the user:

           prev_file (END) - Next: next_file

     Where  prev_file  is  the  file  that was just displayed and
next_file is the
     next file to be displayed.  The following  keys  are  recognized at the

           e or q  quit zmore.

           s        skip  the next file (or exit if the next file
is the last).

     If no files are specified, zmore will read from the standard
input.  In
     this  mode zmore will assume gzip(1) style compression since
there is no
     suffix on which to make a decision.

ENVIRONMENT    [Toc]    [Back]

     PAGER   Program  used   to   display   files.    If   unset,
/usr/bin/more is used.
