      zmore [flags] [file ...]


      zmore is a filter that allows the viewing of files compressed with Lem‐
      pel-Ziv encoding.  Such files generally have a “Z” or “gz” extension
      (both the compress(1) and gzip(1) formats are supported).  Any flags that
      are specified are passed to the user’s preferred PAGER (which is
      /usr/bin/more by default).
      When multiple files are specified, zmore will pause at the end of each
      file and present the following prompt to the user:
            prev_file (END) - Next: next_file
      Where prev_file is the file that was just displayed and next_file is the
      next file to be displayed.  The following keys are recognized at the
            e or q  quit zmore.
            s       skip the next file (or exit if the next file is the last).
      If no files are specified, zmore will read from the standard input.  In
      this mode zmore will assume gzip(1) style compression since there is no
      suffix on which to make a decision.


      PAGER  Program used to display files.  If unset, /usr/bin/more is used.
      compress(1), less(1), more(1)
