zgrep


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

DESCRIPTION
       Zgrep  invokes grep on compressed or gzipped files.  These grep options
       will   cause   zgrep    to    terminate    with    an    error    code:
       (-[drRzZ]|--di*|--exc*|--inc*|--rec*|--nu*).   All other options speci-
       fied 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 the GREP environment variable is set, zgrep uses it as the grep pro-
       gram to be invoked.

EXIT CODE
       2 - An option that is not supported was specified.
