Now I'm getting a bit confused.  I know you from long before, and I know 
you wouldn't make mistakes easily.  MY zless here doesn't decode 
executables and libs, but there's no man page, and zless --help gives 
only the standard less help info, so I don;'t know what zless does that 
less didn't do before I changed out the lesspipe.sh on my local system.

I really wouldn't want to bother folks anymore on this if I'm all wet? 
Does your less not decode tar.gz things?  What does your zless do that 
your less doesn't?  Does either your zless or your less decode 
executables and libraries (via a objdump pipe)?

I gotta admit, I'd never heard of zless.
