ZNEW(1)			    General Commands Manual		       ZNEW(1)

NAME
       znew -	recompress .Z files to .gz files

SYNOPSIS
       znew [ -ftv9PK] [ name.Z	...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       The  Znew  command  recompresses	files from .Z (compress) format	to .gz
       (gzip) format.  If you want to recompress a file	already	in  gzip  for-
       mat, 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 al-
	      ready 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.

SEE ALSO
       gzip(1),	zmore(1), zdiff(1), zgrep(1), zforce(1), gzexe(1), compress(1)

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