NAME
       breed - prepare files for reed

SYNOPSIS
       breed [options] [filename]

DESCRIPTION
       breed  prepares files for viewing by reed. Although the most common use
       is viewing compressed files (.gz, .bz2, etc),  it  also	supports  many
       other  file formats. It can only	take one filename as a parameter, how-
       ever.

       breed has some advantages over  other  generic  viewer  programs	 (like
       lessfile	 or  zmore)  because  it  can tell Reed	the "real" filename so
       bookmarks act correctly.

OPTIONS
       Breed  has  the	same  options  as  Reed.  In  addition,	 if  you  have
       /usr/bin/fold  installed, Breed can word	wrap text automatically, using
       the -w parameter.

USAGE
       breed supports all command line options reed  does,  although  it  only
       allows one filename.

FILES
       .html, .htm, .shtml
	      Uses  Lynx.  breed  is  also  capable  of	using Lynx to download
	      remote files, for	example
	      breed http://www.sacredchao.net/software/reed/

       .bz2, .bz, .gz, .z
	      Uses bunzip2, bunzip, and	gunzip,	respectively. Uncompresses the
	      file  and	 displays it. Note that	the behaviour is different for
	      .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 files.

       .tar, .tar.gz (.tgz), .tar.bz2 (.tb2), .tar.z
	      Displays a listing of files in the archive.

       .arj, .zip (.jar), .lha,	.lhz
	      Display a	listing	of the files in	the archive.  Requires	unarj,
	      unzip, and lha respectively.

       .rpm, .deb
	      Display information about	the package. Requires rpm and dpkg.

       .pdf, .ps, .doc
	      Display  an  approximation  of the document. Requires pdftotext,
	      ps2ascii,	and catdoc, respectively.

       .pdb   View a Palm DOC file. Requires doctotext,	from the  Pyrite  Pub-
	      lisher package.

       .gpg   Decrypt a	file and display the contents. Requires	gpg.

BUGS
       Decrypting  .gpg	 files creates an intermediate file with the plaintext
       contents. This file is deleted when you exit Reed, and  is  mode	 0400,
       however,	 the file is still plaintext on	your hard drive	for as long as
       you're reading it (and probably longer still in your RAM).
