xzless, lzless - view xz or lzma compressed (text) files
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
xzless [ file ...]
lzless [ file ...]
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
xzless is a filter that displays text from compressed files to a terminal. It works on files compressed with
R xz (1) or
R lzma (1). If no files are given,
xzless reads from standard input.
R less (1) to present its output. Unlike
R xzmore , its choice of pager cannot be altered by setting an environment variable. Commands are based on both
R more (1) and
R vi (1) and allow back and forth movement and searching. See the
R less (1) manual for more information.
The command named
lzless is provided for backward compatibility with LZMA Utils.
4. ENVIRONMENT ▲
A list of characters special to the shell. Set by
xzless unless it is already set in the environment.
Set to a command line to invoke the
R xz (1) decompressor for preprocessing the input files to
R less (1).
