XZLESS(1)                          XZ Utils                          XZLESS(1)



NAME
       xzless, lzless - view xz or lzma compressed (text) files

SYNOPSIS
       xzless [file...]
       lzless [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       xzless  is  a  filter  that  displays pagefulls of uncompressed text from compressed file(s) to a terminal.  It
       works on files compressed with xz(1) or lzma(1).  If no files are given, xzless reads from standard input.

       xzless uses less(1) as its only pager.  Unlike xzmore, the choice of pagers is not alterable by an  environment
       variable.   Commands are based on both more(1) and vi(1), and allow back and forth movement and searching.  See
       the less(1) manual for more information.

       The command named lzless is provided for backward compatibility with LZMA Utils.

ENVIRONMENT
       LESSMETACHARS
              A list of characters special to the shell.  Set by xzless unless it is already set in the environment.

       LESSOPEN
              Set to a command line to invoke the xz(1) decompressor for preprocessing the input files to less(1).
