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.
