Do you use midnight commander? You can read compressed .gz
text files without having to first unzip them.

less can do this as well from the commandline, given that the
environment is properly primed with "eval $(lesspipe)".  It can view
many different types of files.  Try it on a .deb!  Have fun.

good times,
Very useful.
Thanks for tip. Could send it to debianplanet.
