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


       zforce [ name ...  ]


       The  zforce  command  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 systems with a 14 char limi-
       tation 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.
