ZLESS(1)                                                              ZLESS(1)




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 then running less.  However, enough people seem to think  that
       having  the  command zless available is important to be worth providing
       it.
