      zforce - force gzip files to have a .gz suffix


      zforce file ...


      The zforce utility renames gzip(1) files to have a ‘.gz’ suffix, so that
      gzip(1) will not compress them twice.  This can be useful if file names
      were truncated during a file transfer.  Files that have an existing
      ‘.gz’, ‘-gz’, ‘_gz’, ‘.tgz’ or ‘.taz’ suffix, or that have not been com‐
      pressed by gzip(1), are ignored.


      zforce overwrites existing files without warning.
