Oops. I wrote:

and if my code doesn't run on your linux box don't be surprised. I'll leave it to you to guess whether I have an alias for unzip in my .bashrc. The alternate choice being that I was thinking about the hypothetical code too fast, and meant to type zcat rather than unzip. And I did have a typo in the use statement which should have read

use XxYyZz.

Note the . at the end.
