MINIGZIP(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		   MINIGZIP(1)

NAME
     minigzip -- minimal implementation	of the 'gzip' compression tool

SYNOPSIS
     minigzip [-cd] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The minigzip utility is a minimal implementation of the gzip(1) utility.
     It	supports compression and decompression of individual files, as well as
     streaming compression and decompression via standard input	and output.

     The default operation is compression, decompression can be	selected by
     supplying the -d flag on the command line.

     If	any file arguments are supplied, the operation is performed on each
     file separately.  Compression replaces the	original file with one having
     a .gz suffix.  Decompression will remove a	.gz suffix if one is present.

     If	no file	arguments are supplied,	minigzip reads from standard input and
     writes the	results	of the operation to standard output.

     If	the -c option is specified, minigzip writes the	results	to standard
     output and	keep the original files	unchanged.
