znew : Linux Command Manual


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

DESCRIPTION
       Znew 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
       -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 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
       gzip, zmore, zdiff, zgrep, zforce, gzexe, compress

BUGS
       Znew 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.
