NAMExzless, lzless - view xz or lzma compressed (text) files
DESCRIPTIONxzless is a filter that displays pagefulls of uncompressed text from compressed file(s) to a terminal. 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) as its only pager. Unlike xzmore, the choice of pagers is not alterable by an environment variable. Commands 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.
- A list of characters special to the shell. Set by xzless unless it is already set in the environment.
- Set to a command line to invoke the xz(1) decompressor for preprocessing the input files to less(1).
