ZRUN(1)								       ZRUN(1)

NAME
       zrun - automatically uncompress arguments to command

SYNOPSIS
       zrun command file.gz [...]

DESCRIPTION
       Prefixing a shell command with "zrun" causes any	compressed files that
       are arguments of	the command to be transparently	uncompressed to	temp
       files (not pipes) and the uncompressed files fed	to the command.

       This is a quick way to run a command that does not itself support
       compressed files, without manually uncompressing	the files.

       The following compression types are supported: gz bz2 Z xz lzma lzo

       If zrun is linked to some name beginning	with z,	like zprog, and	the
       link is executed, this is equivalent to executing "zrun prog".

BUGS
       Modifications to	the uncompressed temporary file	are not	fed back into
       the input file, so using	this as	a quick	way to make an editor support
       compressed files	won't work.
