Display compressed (frozen) files (UNIX)


fcat [filename...]

Runs on:

QNX Neutrino


See freeze for a full listing.


The fcat command is equivalent to freeze -cd. See the freeze utility for details.

Note: The freeze, melt, and fcat compression utilities will eventually become deprecated in favor of toybox utilities, which include gzip, gunzip, and zcat. The freeze suite of utilities will continue to be provided for quite some time before being eliminated completely.
