NAME
       xzgrep - search compressed files for a regular expression

SYNOPSIS
       xzgrep [grep_options] [-e] pattern file...
       xzegrep ...
       xzfgrep ...
       lzgrep ...
       lzegrep ...
       lzfgrep ...

DESCRIPTION
       xzgrep invokes grep(1) on files which may be either uncompressed or compressed with xz(1),
       lzma(1), gzip(1), or bzip2(1).  All options specified are passed directly to grep(1).

       If no file is specified, then standard input is	decompressed  if  necessary  and  fed  to
       grep(1).   When reading from standard input, gzip(1) and bzip2(1) compressed files are not
       supported.

       If xzgrep is invoked as xzegrep or xzfgrep then egrep(1) or fgrep(1) is	used  instead  of
       grep(1).   The  same applies to names lzgrep, lzegrep, and lzfgrep, which are provided for
       backward compatibility with LZMA Utils.

ENVIRONMENT
       GREP   If the GREP environment variable	is  set,  xzgrep  uses	it  instead  of  grep(1),
	      egrep(1), or fgrep(1).

SEE ALSO
       grep(1), xz(1), gzip(1), bzip2(1), zgrep(1)
