       gzmore - file perusal filter for crt viewing of compressed text

       gzmore [ name ...  ]

       Gzmore  is a filter which allows examination of compressed or plain text files one screen-
       ful at a time on a soft-copy terminal.  gzmore works on files  compressed  with	compress,
       pack  or gzip, and also on uncompressed files.  If a file does not exist, gzmore looks for
       a file of the same name with the addition of a .gz, .z or .Z suffix.

       Gzmore normally pauses after each screenful,  printing  --More--  at  the  bottom  of  the
       screen.	 If  the  user	then types a carriage return, one more line is displayed.  If the
       user hits a space, another screenful is displayed.   Other  possibilities  are  enumerated

       Gzmore looks in the file /etc/termcap to determine terminal characteristics, and to deter-
       mine the default window size.  On a terminal capable of displaying 24 lines,  the  default
       window  size  is  22  lines.   To use a pager other than the default more, set environment
       variable PAGER to the name of the desired program, such as less.

       Other sequences which may be typed when gzmore pauses, and their effects, are  as  follows
       (i is an optional integer argument, defaulting to 1) :

	      display i more lines, (or another screenful if no argument is given)

       ^D     display  11  more lines (a ``scroll'').  If i is given, then the scroll size is set
	      to i.

       d      same as ^D (control-D)

       iz     same as typing a space except that i, if present,  becomes  the  new  window  size.
	      Note  that  the  window  size reverts back to the default at the end of the current

       is     skip i lines and print a screenful of lines

       if     skip i screenfuls and print a screenful of lines

       q or Q quit reading the current file; go on to the next (if any)

       e or q When the prompt --More--(Next file: file) is printed, this command causes gzmore to

       s      When the prompt --More--(Next file: file) is printed, this command causes gzmore to
	      skip the next file and continue.

       =      Display the current line number.

       i/expr search for the i-th occurrence of the regular expression expr.  If the  pattern  is
	      not  found,  gzmore  goes  on to the next file (if any).	Otherwise, a screenful is
	      displayed, starting two lines before the place where the expression was found.  The
	      user's erase and kill characters may be used to edit the regular expression.  Eras-
	      ing back past the first column cancels the search command.

       in     search for the i-th occurrence of the last regular expression entered.

	      invoke a shell with command.  The character `!' in "command" is replaced	with  the
	      previous shell command.  The sequence "\!" is replaced by "!".

       :q or :Q
	      quit reading the current file; go on to the next (if any) (same as q or Q).

       .      (dot) repeat the previous command.

       The commands take effect immediately, i.e., it is not necessary to type a carriage return.
       Up to the time when the command character itself is given, the user may hit the line  kill
       character  to  cancel  the numerical argument being formed.  In addition, the user may hit
       the erase character to redisplay the --More-- message.

       At any time when output is being sent to the terminal, the user can hit the quit key (nor-
       mally  control-\).   Gzmore  will stop sending output, and will display the usual --More--
       prompt.	The user may then enter one of the above commands in the normal manner.  Unfortu-
       nately, some output is lost when this is done, due to the fact that any characters waiting
       in the terminal's output queue are flushed when the quit signal occurs.

       The terminal is set to noecho mode by this program so that the output can  be  continuous.
       What you type will thus not show on your terminal, except for the / and !  commands.

       If  the standard output is not a teletype, then gzmore acts just like gzcat, except that a
       header is printed before each file.
