NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for zmore (netbsd section 1)

ZMORE(1)			   BSD General Commands Manual				 ZMORE(1)

     zmore -- view compressed files on a CRT

     zmore [flags] [file ...]

     zmore is a filter that allows the viewing of files compressed with Lempel-Ziv encoding.
     Such files generally have a ``Z'' or ``gz'' extension (both the compress(1) and gzip(1) for-
     mats are supported).  Any flags that are specified are passed to the user's preferred PAGER
     (which is /usr/bin/more by default).

     When multiple files are specified, zmore will pause at the end of each file and present the
     following prompt to the user:

	   prev_file (END) - Next: next_file

     Where prev_file is the file that was just displayed and next_file is the next file to be
     displayed.  The following keys are recognized at the prompt:

	   e or q  quit zmore.

	   s	   skip the next file (or exit if the next file is the last).

     If no files are specified, zmore will read from the standard input.  In this mode zmore will
     assume gzip(1) style compression since there is no suffix on which to make a decision.

     PAGER  Program used to display files.  If unset, /usr/bin/more is used.

     compress(1), less(1), more(1)
