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 systems  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.
