NAME

bsdcat - expand files to standard output  

SYNOPSIS

[options] [files]

 

DESCRIPTION

expands files to standard output.  

OPTIONS

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.
