BZGREP(1)                                                            BZGREP(1)




NAME

       bzgrep, bzfgrep, bzegrep - search possibly bzip2 compressed files for a
       regular expression


SYNOPSIS

       bzgrep [ grep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...
       bzegrep [ egrep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...
       bzfgrep [ fgrep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...


DESCRIPTION

       Bzgrep is used to  invoke  the  grep  on  bzip2-compressed  files.  All
       options  specified  are  passed directly to grep.  If no file is speci-
       fied, 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 bzgrep is invoked as bzegrep or bzfgrep then egrep or fgrep is  used
       instead  of grep.  If the GREP environment variable is set, bzgrep uses
       it as the grep program to be invoked. For example:

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