SYNOPSIS

bzgrep [grep_options] [-e] pattern file...

bzfgrep [fgrep_options] [-e] pattern file...


DESCRIPTION

The bzgrep utility is used to invoke the grep utility on bzip2 compressed files. All options specified are passed directly to grep. If no file is specified, the standard input is decompressed if necessary and fed to grep. Otherwise, the given files are decompressed (if necessary) and fed to grep.

If bzgrep is invoked as bzegrep or bzfgrep, egrep or fgrep is used instead of grep.

Options

The bzgrep, bzegrep, and bzfgrep utilities accept and pass on the options used by the grep, bzegrep, and bzfgrep utilities, respectively.
