@alexcleac Hmm just what i thought. Seems reversible too.
@AskChip totally! Didn't think of this one though 😁
@alexcleac pipelines are awesome
@ndegruchy I thought those things are called "pipes"... Or those words are interchangeable?
@alexcleac Pipeline would be an entire chain. Pipe would be one to the other.
@ndegruchy oh, didn't know about that. Thanks)
@alexcleac Clever, knew about the gz version but not the xz version. Might be fun to make a generic version that works with the common compression formats.
@gudenau man xzcat tells:
unxz is equivalent to xz --decompress.
xzcat is equivalent to xz --decompress --stdout.
lzma is equivalent to xz --format=lzma.
unlzma is equivalent to xz --format=lzma --decompress.
lzcat is equivalent to xz --format=lzma --decompress --stdout.
Those are functionally aliases (but are not actual ones)
@alexcleac That's not automatic though.
