NAME
     zforce -- force gzip files to have a .gz suffix

SYNOPSIS
     zforce file ...

DESCRIPTION
     The zforce utility renames gzip(1) files to have a '.gz' suffix, so that gzip(1) will not
     compress them twice.  This can be useful if file names were truncated during a file trans-
     fer.  Files that have an existing '.gz', '-gz', '_gz', '.tgz' or '.taz' suffix, or that have
     not been compressed by gzip(1), are ignored.

SEE ALSO
     gzip(1)

CAVEATS
     zforce overwrites existing files without warning.
