bzgrep










NAME
     bzgrep, bzfgrep, bzegrep - search possibly bzip2  compressed
     files for a regular expression

SYNOPSIS
     bzgrep [ grep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...
     bzegrep [ egrep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...
     bzfgrep [ fgrep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...

DESCRIPTION
     Bzgrep is used to invoke the grep on bzip2-compressed files.
     All  options  specified  are  passed directly to grep. If no
     file is specified, 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 bzgrep is invoked as bzegrep or  bzfgrep  then  egrep  or
     fgrep is used instead of grep. If the GREP environment vari-
     able is set, bzgrep uses  it  as  the  grep  program  to  be
     invoked. For example:

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