An Open Source input filter for the less pager, as described in less' manual page
lesspipe.sh is a Bash script that runs under a ksh-compatible shell, such as KSH, ZSH, or Bash, and allows users to use less to view files with binary content, compressed files, archives, and more.
Viewing files by accessing a device file is implemented to some extent (DOS file systems and tar files). lesspipe.sh supports many formats, both as plain and compressed files using the gzip, bzip2, or zip algorithms.
