ZFORCE(1)                                               ZFORCE(1)

NAME
       zforce - force a '.gz' extension on all gzip files

SYNOPSIS
       zforce [ name ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       zforce  forces  a  .gz extension on all gzip files so that
       gzip will not compress them twice.  This can be useful for
       files with names truncated after a file transfer.  On sys-
       tems 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.
