       advdef - AdvanceCOMP Deflate Compression Utility

SYNOPSIS

       advdef [-z, --recompress] [-0, --shrink-store]
            [-1, --shrink-fast] [-2, --shrink-normal] [-3, --shrink-extra]
            [-4, --shrink-insane] [-i, --iter N]
            [-f, --force] [-q, --quiet]
            [-h, --help] [-V, --version] FILES...

DESCRIPTION

       The main purpose of this utility is to recompress the data present in the .png, .mng, .gz,
       .tgz and .svgz files.

       The internal structure of the files isn´t changed.  Only the compressed data is modified.

OPTIONS

       -z, --recompress FILES...
              Recompress the specified files. If the -1, -2, -3, -4 options  are  specified  it´s
              used  the  smallest  file  choice  from  the  previous  compressed data and the new
              compression. If the -0 option is specified the file is always rewritten without any
              compression.

       -0, --shrink-store
              Disable  the  compression.  The file is only stored and not compressed. The file is
              always rewritten also if it´s bigger.

       -1, --shrink-fast
              Set the compression level to "fast" using the zlib compressor.

       -2, --shrink-normal
              Set the compression level to "normal" using the 7z compressor.  This is the default
              level of compression.

       -3, --shrink-extra
              Set  the  compression level to "extra" using the 7z compressor.  You can define the
              compressor iterations with the -i, --iter option.

       -4, --shrink-insane
              Set the compression level to "insane" using the zopfli compressor.  You can  define
              the compressor iterations with the -i, --iter option.

       -i, --iter N
              Define  an  additional  numer  of  iterations for the 7z and zopfli compressors for
              modes -3 and -4.  More iterations  usually  give  a  better  compression,  but  may
              require a lot more time.  Try for example with 10, 15, 20, and so on.

       -f, --force
              Force the use of the new file also if it´s bigger.

LIMITATIONS

       The  advdef  program  cannot be used to recompress huge files because it needs to allocate
       memory for both the complete compressed and uncompressed data.
