bsdcat(1)                 BSD General Commands Manual                bsdcat(1)


NAME

     bsdcat -- expand files to standard output


SYNOPSIS

     bsdcat [options] [files]


DESCRIPTION

     bsdcat expands files to standard output.


OPTIONS

     bsdcat typically takes a filename as an argument or reads standard input
     when used in a pipe.  In both cases decompressed data it written to stan-
     dard output.


EXAMPLES

     To decompress a file:

           bsdcat example.txt.gz > example.txt

     To decompress standard input in a pipe:

           cat example.txt.gz | bsdcat > example.txt

     Both examples achieve the same results - a decompressed file by redirect-
     ing output.
