ZNEW(1)								       ZNEW(1)

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

SEE ALSO

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.
