NAME
     zgrep, zegrep, zfgrep -- print lines matching a pattern in gzip-compressed 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 argument.

     zegrep calls egrep(1), while zfgrep calls fgrep(1).

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

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