xzless(1)                          XZ Utils                          xzless(1)




NAME

       xzless, lzless - view xz or lzma compressed (text) files


SYNOPSIS

       xzless [file...]
       lzless [file...]


DESCRIPTION

       xzless is a filter that displays text from compressed files to a termi-
       nal.  It works on files compressed with xz(1) or lzma(1).  If no  files
       are given, xzless reads from standard input.

       xzless  uses  less(1) to present its output.  Unlike xzmore, its choice
       of pager cannot be altered by setting an  environment  variable.   Com-
       mands  are  based  on  both  more(1) and vi(1) and allow back and forth
       movement and searching.  See the less(1) manual for more information.

       The command named lzless is provided for  backward  compatibility  with
       LZMA Utils.


ENVIRONMENT

       LESSMETACHARS
              A list of characters special to the shell.  Set by xzless unless
              it is already set in the environment.

       LESSOPEN
              Set to a command line to invoke the xz(1) decompressor for  pre-
              processing the input files to less(1).
