Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers Create individual tgz files from a set of files Post 302190283 by amitg on Tuesday 29th of April 2008 09:00:46 AM
Thanks for the response. You're right, I just needed to gzip the files. I do want them individually though (for various reasons). The command that I eventually stumbled on and which works fine is :

for i in `ls -l`; do echo $i; bzip2 $i ; done

VFU(1)								 VFU File Manager							    VFU(1)

NAME
vfu - VFU is console (text-mode) file manager for UNIX/Linux SYNOPSIS
vfu [options] DESCRIPTION
vfu has following features: - Fast one-key commands - Extended completition and wildcard expansion - Directory tree with sizes (incl. sizes cache) - File-type colorization (extension and type) - Archives support (TAR, TGZ, BZ2, and many more) - Simple FTP support through archive-like interface - Internal text/hex file viewer and editor (optional) - Extensive user-defined external support/utils - Regular expressions selection and search - Multiple file masks - and much more... OPTIONS
-h prints help for command line options -i runs vfu in interactive mode (can be used with -d) -d path changes working directory to `path' -r rebuild directory tree -t view directory tree only These options are for using vfu in partial non-interactive mode. example: vfu -d /usr/local -i CONFIGURATION
vfu configuration is divided in two parts (files): vfu.conf This file contains configuration for external editor and pager, favorite directories, file-type colorization. This is plain text file which format is described below. vfu only reads vfu.conf, it never writes in it! vfu.options This file contains all Options/Toggles which can be changed from inside vfu -- Options menu. vfu.options is binary file and is overwritten on vfu exit or on change option event! Deleting this file will reset vfu toggles to default values. vfu.options is not portable between vfu versions! Location of vfu.conf vfu.conf can be placed as any of: $HOME/.vfu/vfu.conf $HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/vfu.conf (if $RC_PREFIX is exported) /etc/vfu.conf /usr/local/etc/vfu.conf /usr/local/vfu.conf Other files location All other files including vfu.options are placed in: $HOME/.vfu/ $HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/ What is "$RC_PREFIX" and why to use it? Some more information for this can be found in the CONFIG file which is supplied with vfu package. VFU.CONF This is a sample copy of vfu.conf with appropriate comments: DISTRIBUTION
It is supposed that only source packages will be distributed. However sometimes binary packages will be released, but not often. VFU packages are named in this way: vfu-X.xx.src.tgz source package for version X.xx vfu-X.xx.bin.platform.tgz binary package for version X.xx for `platform' platform examples: vfu-4.00.src.tgz vfu-4.00.bin.linux.glibc.tgz vfu-4.00.bin.linux.libc5.tgz vfu-4.00.bin.dos.tgz All packages are TAR+GZIP .tgz, bz2 and zip are available on request. NOTE: Always check HISTORY document -- it often contains some usefull notes! FILES
$HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/vfu.conf configuration, explained above $HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/vfu.options options, explained above $HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/vfu.history contains history lines $HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/vfu.tree contains directory tree If you don't set $RC_PREFIX configuration files are: $HOME/.vfu/vfu.conf $HOME/.vfu/vfu.options $HOME/.vfu/vfu.history $HOME/.vfu/vfu.tree TODO
