pack [options ] files

Compact each file and place the result in file .z . The original file is replaced. To restore packed files to their original form, see pcat and unpack .

The compress and gzip commands give much better compression. Their use is recommended. (See compress and gzip in Chapter 2 .)



Print number of times each byte is used, relative frequency, and byte code.


Force the pack even when disk space isn't saved.
