NAME

  objZ - Compression utility

SYNOPSIS

  objZ [options] input

OPTIONS

  The objZ command accepts the following options:

  -u  Decompress input.	 The input file	must be	in ALPHAMAGICZ compressed
      object file format.

  -v  Print the	argument count,	input length, and output length.

DESCRIPTION

  The objZ command takes a regular, read/write file in ALPHAMAGIC format as
  input	and converts it	to ALPHAMAGICZ compressed format. The compressed out-
  put file replaces the	input file.

  When the -u option is	specified, the objZ command takes as input a file in
  ALPHAMAGICZ format (that is, a file previously produced by the objZ command
  or by	the as command with the	-compress option) and converts it to
  ALPHAMAGIC format.

ERRORS

  When compressing an input file, the objZ command generates errors if the
  file is not a	regular	file (for example, a directory or device special
  file), if the	file is	read-only, if its header cannot	be read, if the	file
  is not in ALPHAMAGIC format, or if a compression failure occurs.

  When decompressing an	input file, the	objZ command generates errors if the
  file is not a	regular	file, if the file is read-only,	if the file is not in
  ALPHAMAGICZ format, or if a decompression failure occurs.
