    Decompress gzip files

    Unzip gzip files

    Having a bunch of compressed files:

    access.log.10.gz
    access.log.11.gz
    access.log.12.gz
    access.log.13.gz
    access.log.14.gz
    access.log.2.gz
    access.log.3.gz
    access.log.4.gz
    access.log.5.gz
    access.log.6.gz
    access.log.7.gz
    access.log.8.gz
    access.log.9.gz
    

    To decompress all files in the current path, we use the find command with -exec option. The command itself is gzip --decompress or gunzip.

    find . *.gz -exec gzip -d {} \;
    

    Also possible and easier:

    gunzip *.gz
