NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     znew - convert compressed files to gzipped files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     znew [-ftv9K] file ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The znew  utility  uncompresses  files  compressed  by  compress(1) and recompresses
 them with gzip(1).

     The options are as follows:

     -f       Overwrite existing `.gz' files.  Unless this option
is specified,
             znew refuses to overwrite existing files.

     -t      Test integrity of the gzipped file  before  deleting
the original
             file.   If  the  integrity check fails, the original
`.Z' file is
             not removed.

     -v      Print a report specifying the  achieved  compression

     -9       Use  the  -9 mode of gzip(1), achieving better compression at the
             cost of slower execution.

     -K      Keep the original `.Z' file if  it  uses  less  disk
blocks than the
             gzipped one.  A disk block is 1024 bytes.

CAVEATS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The  znew  utility  tries  to  maintain the file mode of the
original file.
     If the original file is not writable, it is not able  to  do
that and znew
     will print a warning.
