zstdgrep - Man Page

print lines matching a pattern in zstandard-compressed files


zstdgrep [grep-flags] [--] pattern [files ...]


zstdgrep runs grep (1) on files or stdin, if no files argument is given, after decompressing them with zstdcat (1).

The grep-flags and pattern arguments are passed on to grep (1). If an -e flag is found in the grep-flags, zstdgrep will not look for a pattern argument.

Exit Status

In case of missing arguments or missing pattern, 1 will be returned, otherwise 0.
