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   the    environment    variable    LESSMETACHARS    to
       '<space><tab><newline>;*?"()<>[|&^`#\$%=~',   and  then  running  less.
       However, enough people seem to think  that  having  the  command  zless
       available is important to be worth providing it.

SEE ALSO

       zmore(1), less(1)

BUGS

       Zless  does  not  work  with  compressed  data  that is piped to it via
       standard input; it requires that input files be specified as arguments.
       To  read  compressed  data  from  a  pipe,  you can use ...|gunzip|less
       instead of ...|zless.
