to-7zip(1)                                                          to-7zip(1)




NAME

       to-7zip - converts .Z, .gz, and .bz2 files to 7-zip format


SYNOPSIS

       to-7zip [ -d(elete_original) ] [ -h(elp) ] [ -k(eep_smallest) ]
       [ -l(zma_only) ] [ -m(ax_compress) ] [ -n(o_overwrite) ]
       [ -p(pmd_only) ] file...


DESCRIPTION

       to-7zip recompresses files compressed with the bzip2, gzip, or compress
       utilities to 7zip format.  The newly compressed files will usually have
       a .7z or a .t7z extension.


OPTIONS

       -d     After each file is compressed, delete the original.

       -h     Print help and quit.

       -k     Once  a  file is successfully recompressed, delete the larger of
              the original file or the new one.  This  option  maximizes  disk
              space savings and is incompatible with the -d option.

       -l     Use  the LZMA compression algorithm exclusively, not trying PPMd
              compression.  Normally  both  algorithms  are  tried,  with  the
              smallest  file  from  the two trials being kept.  This option is
              incompatible with the -p option.

       -m     Compress more, but at the expense of increased CPU time and mem-
              ory usage.

       -n     Do  not  overwrite  the  target  .7z  or .t7z file if it already
              exists.

       -p     Use the PPMd compression algorithm exclusively, not trying  LZMA
              compression.  This option is incompatible with the -l option.
