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.

BUGS

       If  the  -P  option  is  used, znew does not maintain the time stamp if
       touch(1) does not support the -r option, and does not maintain  permis-
       sions if chmod(1) does not support the --reference option.
