Recompress files from .Z to gzip format. More information:

  • Recompress a file from .Z to gzip format:

znew {{path/to/file1.Z}}

  • Recompress multiple files and display the achieved size reduction % per file:

znew -v {{path/to/file1.Z path/to/file2.Z ...}}

  • Recompress a file using the slowest compression method (for optimal compression):

znew -9 {{path/to/file1.Z}}

  • Recompress a file, [K]eeping the .Z file if it is smaller than the gzip file:

znew -K {{path/to/file1.Z}}
