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 transfer. 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. BSD

NAME
gzforce - force a '.gz' extension on all gzip files SYNOPSIS
gzforce [ name ... ] DESCRIPTION
gzforce forces a .gz extension on all gzip files so that gzip will not compress them twice. This can be useful for files with names trun- cated after a file transfer. On systems with a 14 char limitation on file names, the original name is truncated to make room for the .gz suffix. For example, 12345678901234 is renamed to 12345678901.gz. A file name such as foo.tgz is left intact. SEE ALSO
