ZMORE(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		      ZMORE(1)

NAME
     zmore -- view compressed files

SYNOPSIS
     zmore [flags] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     zmore is a	filter that allows the viewing of files	compressed with	Lem-
     pel-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
     prompt:

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

SEE ALSO
     compress(1), less(1), more(1)
