Package description for 'lesspipe', a preprocessor for less 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 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
 the following formats (both as plain and compressed files using
 compress, gzip, bzip2, or zip): tar, nroff, (sh)ar, HTML, executables,
 directories, RPM and Debian (.deb) archives, MS-Word, ps, DVI, and PDF.
