ZGREP(1)                NetBSD 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).

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

SEE ALSO
     egrep(1), fgrep(1), grep(1), gzip(1), zcat(1)
