pcat - unpack and concatenate files created by pack
pcat [ options ] file ...
does for packed files what cat(1)
does for ordinary files, except
cannot be used as filter. For each file
specified, a search is made for a file named file.z
(or just file
, if file
ends in .z
). If this file appears to be a packed file, pcat
unpacks the file and
writes it to standard output.
- All files unpacked successfully.
- n files failed to unpack, where n is less than 125.
- 125 or more files failed to unpack.
