ZGREP(1)	       DragonFly General Commands Manual	      ZGREP(1)

NAME

zgrep, zegrep, zfgrep -- print lines matching a pattern in gzip-com- pressed files

SYNOPSIS

zgrep [grep-flags] [--] pattern [files ...] zegrep [grep-flags] [--] pattern [file ...] zfgrep [grep-flags] [--] pattern [file ...]

DESCRIPTION

zgrep runs grep(1) on files or stdin, if no files argument is given, after decompressing them with zcat(1). The grep-flags and pattern arguments are passed on to grep(1). If an -e flag is found in the grep-flags, zgrep will not look for a pattern argu- ment. zegrep calls egrep(1), while zfgrep calls fgrep(1).

DIAGNOSTICS

In case of missing arguments or missing pattern, 1 will be returned, oth- erwise 0.
