ZGREP(1)							      ZGREP(1)

NAME
       zgrep - search possibly compressed files	for a regular expression

SYNOPSIS
       zgrep [ grep_options ] [	-e ] pattern filename...

DESCRIPTION
       Zgrep  is  used to invoke the grep on compress'ed or gzip'ed files. All
       options specified are passed directly to	grep.  If no  file  is	speci-
       fied,  then  the	standard input is decompressed if necessary and	fed to
       grep.  Otherwise	the given files	are uncompressed if necessary and  fed
       to grep.

       If  zgrep  is  invoked  as zegrep or zfgrep then	egrep or fgrep is used
       instead of grep.	 If the	GREP environment variable is set,  zgrep  uses
       it as the grep program to be invoked. For example:

	   for sh:  GREP=fgrep	zgrep string files
	   for csh: (setenv GREP fgrep;	zgrep string files)
