NAME
       compressdir,  uncompressdir  -	compress and uncompress directories of
       files

SYNOPSIS
       compressdir [ flags ] [ directory ...  ]
       uncompressdir [ flags ] [ directory ...	]

DESCRIPTION
       Recursively decends each specified directory and compresses each	 file.
       Each  file is replaced by a file with the extension .Z, but only if the
       file got smaller.  If no directories are specified, the compression  is
       applied	to  all files starting with the current directory.  Compressed
       files can be restored to their original form by	running	 uncompressdir
       on the directories.

       The flags specified are passed to the compress(1) program.
