ZGREP(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		      ZGREP(1)

NAME
     zgrep, zegrep, zfgrep -- print lines matching a pattern in	gzip-com-
     pressed files

SYNOPSIS
     zgrep [grep-flags]	[--] pattern [files ...]

     zegrep [grep-flags] [--] pattern [file ...]

     zfgrep [grep-flags] [--] pattern [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     zgrep runs	grep(1)	on files or stdin, if no files argument	is given, af-
     ter decompressing them with zcat(1).

     The grep-flags and	pattern	arguments are passed on	to grep(1).  If	an -e
     flag is found in the grep-flags, zgrep will not look for a	pattern	argu-
     ment.

     zegrep calls egrep(1), while zfgrep calls fgrep(1).

EXIT STATUS
     In	case of	missing	arguments or missing pattern, 1	will be	returned, oth-
     erwise 0.

SEE ALSO
     egrep(1), fgrep(1), grep(1), gzip(1), zcat(1)
