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)
