in thread dynamic zcat and grep

On some systems, gunzip -c and zcat are identical.
thulben@alpha:~ 17 $ md5sum /bin/gzip /bin/zcat /bin/gunzip 57cd8cdf42fbda6e0a1f5e17ac986b4f /bin/gzip 57cd8cdf42fbda6e0a1f5e17ac986b4f /bin/zcat 57cd8cdf42fbda6e0a1f5e17ac986b4f /bin/gunzip

[holli]: here's something for you to watch, James. I think you will like it
[erix]: for the record: I have not downvoted anyone on that subthread that was my fault
[james28909]: there are all kinds of things that had to happen to let life come to be. but at the same time, life may not be the end goal IF there is any kind of end goal lol
[james28909]: well who is the person who gets to decide which behaviour is worthy of a downvote? a person with their own beliefs? xD
