CentOS 7.0 - man page for xzless (centos section 1)

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 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) to present its output.  Unlike xzmore, its choice of pager cannot be
       altered by setting 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 informa-
       tion.

       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 preprocessing the input
	      files to less(1).

SEE ALSO
       less(1), xz(1), xzmore(1), zless(1)
