       Zcat - decompress and concatenate files to standard output


       zcat [options] [files]


       Zcat  copies  each  given  file ("-" means standard input), to standard
       output. If any given file is compressed, its  uncompressed  content  is
       used.  If  a  given file does not exist, and its name does not end with
       one of the known extensions,  zcat  tries  the  compressed  file  names
       corresponding  to the supported compressors. If no files are specified,
       data is read from standard input, decompressed if needed, and  sent  to
       standard  output.  Data  read  from  standard input must be of the same
       type; all uncompressed or all compressed with the same compressor.  The
       supported compressors are bzip2, gzip, lzip and xz.

       Exit status is 0 if no errors occurred, 1 otherwise.
