ZNEW(1)                                                   ZNEW(1)

       znew -   recompress .Z files to .gz files

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

       Znew  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 znew.

       -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  com-

       -P     Use  pipes  for the conversion to reduce disk space

       -K     Keep a .Z file when it is smaller than the .gz file

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

       Znew 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.
