RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for bzgrep (redhat section 1)

BZGREP(1)			     General Commands Manual				BZGREP(1)

NAME
       bzgrep, bzfgrep, bzegrep - search possibly bzip2 compressed files for a regular expression

SYNOPSIS
       bzgrep [ grep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...
       bzegrep [ egrep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...
       bzfgrep [ fgrep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...

DESCRIPTION
       Bzgrep  is  used  to  invoke the grep on bzip2-compressed files. All options specified are
       passed directly to grep.  If no file is specified, then the standard input is decompressed
       if necessary and fed to grep.  Otherwise the given files are uncompressed if necessary and
       fed to grep.

       If bzgrep is invoked as bzegrep or bzfgrep then egrep or fgrep is used  instead	of  grep.
       If the GREP environment variable is set, bzgrep uses it as the grep program to be invoked.
       For example:

	   for sh:  GREP=fgrep	bzgrep string files
	   for csh: (setenv GREP fgrep; bzgrep string files)
