zless - file perusal filter for crt viewing of compressed text
zless [ name ... ]
Zless is a filter which allows examination of compressed or plain text files
one screenful at a time on a soft-copy terminal. It is the equivalent of
setting the environment variable LESSOPEN to "|gzip -cdfq %s",
and then running
less. However, enough people seem to think that having the
zless available is important to be worth providing it.
