ZMORE(1)                                                              ZMORE(1)



NAME
       zmore - file perusal filter for crt viewing of compressed text

SYNOPSIS
       zmore [ name ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       Zmore  is  a  filter which allows examination of compressed or plain text files one
       screenful at a time on a soft-copy terminal.  zmore works on files compressed  with
       compress,  pack or gzip, and also on uncompressed files.  If a file does not exist,
       zmore looks for a file of the same name with the addition of a .gz, .z or  .Z  suf-
       fix.

       Zmore  normally pauses after each screenful, printing --More-- at the bottom of the
       screen.  If the user then types a carriage return, one more line is displayed.   If
       the  user  hits  a  space, another screenful is displayed.  Other possibilities are
       enumerated later.

       Zmore looks in the file /etc/termcap to determine terminal characteristics, and  to
       determine  the  default window size.  On a terminal capable of displaying 24 lines,
       the default window size is 22 lines.  To use a pager other than the  default  more,
       set environment variable PAGER to the name of the desired program, such as less.

       Other  sequences  which  may  be typed when zmore pauses, and their effects, are as
       follows (i is an optional integer argument, defaulting to 1) :


       i<space>
              display i more lines, (or another screenful if no argument is given)


       ^D     display 11 more lines (a ''scroll'').  If i is given, then the  scroll  size
              is set to i.


       d      same as ^D (control-D)


       iz     same  as  typing  a  space except that i, if present, becomes the new window
              size.  Note that the window size reverts back to the default at the  end  of
              the current file.


       is     skip i lines and print a screenful of lines


       if     skip i screenfuls and print a screenful of lines


       q or Q quit reading the current file; go on to the next (if any)


       e or q When  the  prompt  --More--(Next file: file) is printed, this command causes
              zmore to exit.


       s      When the prompt --More--(Next file: file) is printed,  this  command  causes
              zmore to skip the next file and continue.


       =      Display the current line number.


       i/expr search  for the i-th occurrence of the regular expression expr.  If the pat-
              tern is not found, zmore goes on to the next file (if  any).   Otherwise,  a
              screenful  is  displayed,  starting  two  lines  before  the place where the
              expression was found.  The user's erase and kill characters may be  used  to
              edit the regular expression.  Erasing back past the first column cancels the
              search command.


       in     search for the i-th occurrence of the last regular expression entered.


       !command
              invoke a shell with command.  The character '!'  in  "command"  is  replaced
              with the previous shell command.  The sequence "\!" is replaced by "!".


       :q or :Q
              quit  reading the current file; go on to the next (if any) (same as q or Q).


       .      (dot) repeat the previous command.

       The commands take effect immediately, i.e., it is not necessary to type a  carriage
       return.   Up  to  the time when the command character itself is given, the user may
       hit the line kill character to cancel the  numerical  argument  being  formed.   In
       addition, the user may hit the erase character to redisplay the --More-- message.

       At  any  time  when output is being sent to the terminal, the user can hit the quit
       key (normally control-\).  Zmore will stop sending output,  and  will  display  the
       usual  --More--  prompt.   The user may then enter one of the above commands in the
       normal manner.  Unfortunately, some output is lost when this is done,  due  to  the
       fact  that  any  characters waiting in the terminal's output queue are flushed when
       the quit signal occurs.

       The terminal is set to noecho mode by this program so that the output can  be  con-
       tinuous.  What you type will thus not show on your terminal, except for the / and !
       commands.

       If the standard output is not a teletype, then zmore acts just  like  zcat,  except
       that a header is printed before each file.
