NAME

znew – recompress .Z files to .gz files

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; implies -t.

SEE ALSO

gzip, zmore, zdiff, zgrep, zforce, gzexe, compress

BUGS

Znew does not maintain the time stamp with the -P option if cpmod is
not available and touch does not support the -r option.
