NAME

       MBK_OUT_FILTER - define the input filter

DESCRIPTION

       MBK_OUT_FILTER  sets  the  output filter for writting compressed Alliance files. Filter is
       typically a string containing filename and options. This filter must read  non  compressed
       data  flow on it standard input and write compressed data flow on it standard output. If a
       non compressed version of a file exist in the same target directory the designer want  the
       save  a  file's compressed version, to ensure that file will be read later and not the non
       compressed one, the non  compressed  file  is  DELETED.   To  activate  filters,  variable
       MBK_FILTER_SFX must be set.

EXAMPLE

       Writing compressed files with gzip :
            setenv MBK_OUT_FILTER "/asim/gnu/bin/gzip -c"
            setenv MBK_FILTER_SFX ".gz"
