NAME
     bsdcat -- expand files to standard	output

SYNOPSIS
     bsdcat [options] [files]

DESCRIPTION
     bsdcat expands files to standard output.

OPTIONS
     bsdcat typically takes a filename as an argument or reads standard	input
     when used in a pipe. In both cases	decompressed data it written to	stan-
     dard output.

EXAMPLES
     To	decompress a file:

	   bsdcat example.txt.gz > example.txt

     To	decompress standard input in a pipe:

	   cat example.txt.gz |	bsdcat > example.txt

     Both examples achieve the same results - a	decompressed file by redirect-
     ing output.
