gznew


NAME
     gznew -   recompress .Z files to .gz files

SYNOPSIS
     gznew [ -ftv9PK] [ name.Z ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
     Gznew recompresses files from .Z (compress)  format  to  .gz
     (gzip)  format.  If you want to recompress a file already in
     gzip format, rename the file to force a  .Z  extension  then
     apply gznew.

OPTIONS
     -f   Force recompression from .Z to .gz format even if a .gz
          file already exists.

     -t   Tests the new files before deleting originals.

     -v   Verbose. Display the name and percentage reduction  for
          each file compressed.

     -9   Use the slowest compression  method  (optimal  compres-
          sion).

     -P   Use pipes for  the  conversion  to  reduce  disk  space
          usage.

     -K   Keep a .Z file when it is smaller than the .gz file

     gzexe(1), compress(1)

BUGS
     Gznew does not maintain the time stamp with the -P option if
     cpmod(1)  is not available and touch(1) does not support the
     -r option.
