lz - gunzips and shows a listing of a gzip'd tar'd archive
provides a listing of a gzip'd tar'd archive, that is a tar(1) archive
compressed with the gzip(1) utility.
It is not strictly necessary on Debian GNU/Linux, because the GNU
tar(1) program provides the same capability with the command
but this utility is provided in the mtools package for other platforms and
is retained here for completeness.
