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.
