lesspipe: A preprocessor for less1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

lesspipe.sh is an input filter for the pager less as described in less's man page. The script runs under a ksh-compatible shell (ksh, bash, zsh) and allows you to use less to view compressed files, archives, and files contained in archives. Viewing files by accessing a device file is implemented to some extent (DOS filesystems and tar files). It supports the following formats (both as plain and compressed files using compress, gzip, bzip2, or zip): tar, nroff, (sh)ar, HTML, executables, directories, RPM and Debian (.deb) archives, MS-Word, ps, DVI, and PDF.
