GZNEW(1)							      GZNEW(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     gznew -   recompress .Z files to .gz files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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	znew.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

     -t	  Tests	the new	files before deleting originals.

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

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

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

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

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     gzip(1), gzmore(1), gzdiff(1), gzgrep(1), gzforce(1), gzexe(1),

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.
