ZNEW(1)			FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		       ZNEW(1)

NAME
     znew -- convert compressed	files to gzipped files

SYNOPSIS
     znew [-ftv9K] file	...

DESCRIPTION
     The znew utility uncompresses files compressed by compress(1) and recom-
     presses them with gzip(1).

     The options are as	follows:

     -f	     Overwrite existing	`.gz' files.  Unless this option is specified,
	     znew refuses to overwrite existing	files.

     -t	     Test integrity of the gzipped file	before deleting	the original
	     file.  If the integrity check fails, the original `.Z' file is
	     not removed.

     -v	     Print a report specifying the achieved compression	ratios.

     -9	     Use the -9	mode of	gzip(1), achieving better compression at the
	     cost of slower execution.

     -K	     Keep the original `.Z' file if it uses less disk blocks than the
	     gzipped one.  A disk block	is 1024	bytes.

SEE ALSO
     gzip(1)

CAVEATS
     The znew utility tries to maintain	the file mode of the original file.
     If	the original file is not writable, it is not able to do	that and znew
     will print	a warning.
