APLawrence.com -  Resources for Unix and Linux Systems, Bloggers and the self-employed


A useful Debian tool that lets you "see" compressed files without uncompressing them. The difference from the more commonly known zcat is just that it can understand other formats beyond text (it uses "mailcap" to figure out what to do).

You'll find the manpage at "run-mailcap" as "see" is just an alias. See Deb run-mailcap.

The history of the world teaches us that succession is dangerous and that the strong take what they want. It's not likely to be any different with Linux. (Tony Lawrence)
