bsdcat expands files to standard output.

bsdcat typically takes a filename as an argument or reads standard input when used in a pipe. In both cases decompressed data it written to standard output.

To decompress a file:
bsdcat example.txt.gz > example.txt
To decompress standard input in a pipe:
cat example.txt.gz | bsdcat > example.txt
Both examples achieve the same results - a decompressed file by redirecting output.
