NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     zforce - force gzip files to have a .gz suffix

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     zforce file ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The zforce utility renames gzip(1) files  to  have  a  `.gz'
suffix, so that
     gzip(1) will not compress them twice.  This can be useful if
file names
     were truncated during a file transfer.  Files that  have  an
     `.gz',  `-gz',  `_gz', `.tgz' or `.taz' suffix, or that have
not been compressed
 by gzip(1), are ignored.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]


CAVEATS    [Toc]    [Back]

     zforce overwrites existing files without warning.
