Yes, of course. But zmore is smart enough to figure out what to do with
several compression techniques, or even to handle non-compressed files
very trivially and without hassle.

'zmore' is a simple shell script which calls "gzcat | ${PAGER-more}". One solution to your problem, or at least a solution, would be to change zmore to look for a trailing bz/bz2 or invoke bzcat instead. Another would be to change the sources of gzip to recognize the bzip2 magic files bytes, extending the detection of gzip versus classic LZH used by compress.

Compression formats are similar to graphic image formats in the PBMPLUS sense.
