Webalizer and Compressed Logs


I am trying to find out if there is way to get webalizer to scan my compressed log files.

I know that webalizer will automatically do it if the log file name you enter in the conf file ends in gz.

The problem I have is that my apache logs are in the format of access.log. And when logrotate runs it compresses them and renames them access.log.1.gz with an incrementing number. This is throwing off webalizer.

Is there a way to make webalizer read these anyway? Or am I screwed and I need to redo all my apache log and logrotate settings?

I'm running RHEL5, Apache 2.2.

Thanks,
David

webalizer shouldn't have a problem, the extension is still gz.
One option is to write a small script to run webalizer and uncompress the files on the fly

zcat access.log.1.gz|webalizer blah blah....

Perhaps I'm understanding webalizer wrong. If I have say 3 months worth of log files but have never run webalizer on them. Then one day, setup up and run webalizer on them, will it scan all the log files, or just the most recent one? How does it keep track of what is has and has not yet scanned?
