gzfgrep


NAME
     gzgrep, gzegrep, gzfgrep - search possibly compressed  files
     for a regular expression

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

DESCRIPTION
     Gzgrep 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  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 gzgrep is invoked as gzegrep or  gzfgrep  then  egrep  or
     fgrep is used instead of grep. If the GREP environment vari-
     able is set, gzgrep uses  it  as  the  grep  program  to  be
     invoked. For example:

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