awk in .gz file

Hi I have a file which is a .gz file. I want to use awk in this file. Like below:

awk '/Error 123 detected/{++c};c==2' file.gz

but the above line doesn't return any result which it should because in my file there is so many lines which contains my seach words. I tried to use gawk but my system doesn't have it. Any other way to do this?

unzip and use awk

First unzip the .gz file and send the contents to awk. I think you cannot awk a '.gz' file. Awk may not recognise the format of the data in the .gz file.

That was my initial plan, but it will take time to unzip the file of large size, will consume space and takes another processing if I do so.

gunzip -c file.gz | awk '/Error 123 detected/{++c};c==2'
