    Less can read .gz compressed files ? (solved)

    Just a dumb question,I've seen that less can read my older .gz logfiles just fine,no need to use zless - is this normal ?

    See lessfile(1). BTW, this is my ~/.lessfilter
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    case "$1" in
    *.ttf)
      ftdump -n "$1";;
    *.cpio)
      cpio -itv < "$1";;
    *.odt)
      odt2txt "$1";;
    *.ps)
      pstotext "$1";;
    *.md)
      markdown --html4tags "$1" | html2text;;
    *)
      exit 1;;
    esac
    exit 0
