GZFORCE(1)							    GZFORCE(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzforce - force a '.gz' extension on all gzip files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzforce [ name ...	 ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzforce forces a .gz extension on all gzip	files so that gzip will	not
     compress them twice.  This	can be useful for files	with names truncated
     after a file transfer.  On	systems	with a 14 char limitation on file
     names, the	original name is truncated to make room	for the	.gz suffix.
     For example, 12345678901234 is renamed to 12345678901.gz. A file name
     such as foo.tgz is	left intact.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]
