NAME
       gznew -	 recompress .Z files to .gz files

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

DESCRIPTION
       Gznew  recompresses  files from .Z (compress) format to .gz (gzip) format.  If you want to
       recompress a file already in gzip format, rename the file to force  a  .Z  extension  then
       apply gznew.

OPTIONS
       -f     Force recompression from .Z to .gz format even if a .gz file already 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

SEE ALSO
       gzip(1), gzmore(1), gzdiff(1), gzgrep(1), gzforce(1), gzexe(1), compress(1)

BUGS
       Gznew does not maintain the time stamp with the -P option if cpmod(1) is not available and
       touch(1) does not support the -r option.
