gzip

 
Compress/uncompress files with gzip compression (LZ77). More information: https://www.gnu.org/software/gzip/manual/gzip.html.
 
  • Compress a file, replacing it with a gzipped compressed version:
     
    gzip {{file.ext}}
     
  • Decompress a file, replacing it with the original uncompressed version:
     
    gzip -d {{file.ext}}.gz
     
  • Compress a file, keeping the original file:
     
    gzip --keep {{file.ext}}
     
  • Compress a file specifying the output filename:
     
    gzip -c {{file.ext}} > {{compressed_file.ext.gz}}
     
  • Decompress a gzipped file specifying the output filename:
     
    gzip -c -d {{file.ext}}.gz > {{uncompressed_file.ext}}
     
  • Specify the compression level. 1=Fastest (Worst), 9=Slowest (Best), Default level is 6:
     
    gzip -9 -c {{file.ext}} > {{compressed_file.ext.gz}}
