NAME

bsdcat – expand files to standard output

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


bsdcat [options] [files]

DESCRIPTION

bsdcat expands files to standard output.

OPTIONS

bsdcat typically takes a filename as an argument or reads standard input when used in a pipe. In both cases decompressed data it written to standard output.

EXAMPLES

To decompress a file:

    bsdcat example.txt.gz > example.txt

To decompress standard input in a pipe:

    cat example.txt.gz | bsdcat > example.txt

Both examples achieve the same results - a decompressed file by redirecting output.
