NAME bsdcat — expand files to standard output
SYNOPSIS bsdcat [options] [files]
DESCRIPTION bsdcat expands files to standard output.
OPTIONS bsdcat typically takes a filename as an argument or reads standard input when used in a pipe. In both cases decompressed data it written to standard output.
EXAMPLES To decompress a file: bsdcat example.txt.gz > example.txt To decompress standard input in a pipe: cat example.txt.gz | bsdcat > example.txt Both examples achieve the same results - a decompressed file by redirecting output.
