Description:   Preprocessor for less (1.72-11) is an input filter for the pager less. It allows to view files with binary content, compressed files, archives and files contained in archives. A large and growing number of formats are supported both as plain and compressed files using compress, gzip, bzip2 or zip. Interesting for Mac OS X is the possibity to view BOM (Bill of Materials) archives, either directly or by just giving the package name, i.e. less foo.pkg will display the BOM of this package. Additionally, syntax highlighting for the languages ada, asm, awk, c, c++, groff, html, xml, java, javascript, lisp, m4, make, pascal, patch, perl, povray, python, ruby, shellscript and sql is provided.
Usage Hints:   
After installing lesspipe you have to source /sw/bin/init.(c)sh before you can use lesspipe, because it uses the environment variable LESSOPEN. Additionally the envrionment variable LESS is set. It feeds the option '--raw-control-chars' to less which enables syntax highlighting.
