lesspipe.sh is an input filter for the pager less as described in less's man page. The script runs under a ksh-compatible shell (ksh, bash, zsh) and allows you to use less to view files with binary content, compressed files, archives, and files contained in archives.
Viewing files by accessing a device file is implemented to some extent (DOS filesystems and tar files). It supports many formats (both as plain and compressed files using compress, gzip, bzip2, or zip). Syntax highlighting for many languages is available through a helper script, "code2color".
What's New in This Release:
lesspipe now includes support for viewing the contents of rar and 7-zip archives and to display an ASCII representation of the contents of Openoffice documents.
For images (PNG, GIF, JPEG, and other formats), the file's format and characteristics are shown.
Debian packages can now be viewed without installing dpkg.
Various small bugfixes and optimizations were done.
The documentation and the test suite have been enhanced.
