NAME

       zrun - automatically uncompress arguments to command

SYNOPSIS

       zrun command file.gz [...]

DESCRIPTION

       Prefixing a shell command with "zrun" causes any compressed files that
       are arguments of the command to be transparently uncompressed to temp
       files (not pipes) and the uncompressed files fed to the command.

       This is a quick way to run a command that does not itself support
       compressed files, without manually uncompressing the files.

       The following compression types are supported: gz bz2 Z xz lzma lzo

       If zrun is linked to some name beginning with z, like zprog, and the
       link is executed, this is equivalent to executing "zrun prog".

BUGS

       Modifications to the uncompressed temporary file are not fed back into
       the input file, so using this as a quick way to make an editor support
       compressed files won't work.
