I have a huge gzipped file and I want a program (4s-import in this case) to read it. It takes a lot of time to first unzip the file and then call the program with the path to the file as an argument. Would it be possible to do something like:
zcat huge.gz | 4s-import <SOME MAGIC>
where SOME-MAGIC is like a path to an abstract file that contains stdin?
The much slower and more disk space consuming alternative that I have to do otherwise is:
zcat huge.gz > huger 4s-import huger
