BZGREP(1)							     BZGREP(1)

       bzgrep, bzfgrep, bzegrep - search possibly bzip2 compressed files for a
       regular expression

       bzgrep [ grep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...
       bzegrep [ egrep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...
       bzfgrep [ fgrep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename...

       Bzgrep is used to  invoke  the  grep  on  bzip2-compressed  files.  All
       options	specified  are	passed directly to grep.  If no file is speci
       fied, 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)

       Troin  for Debian GNU/Linux.
