What does the .Z file extension mean?
.Z (capital Z) file extension
is not the same as the
.z (lowercase z) file extension.
Files that end with the extension
.Z are normally
Unix compressed. To uncompress them, use the appropriate
program from the following table:
|Operating system||Program to use|
|Mac OS or Mac OS X||Built-in Archive Utility|
At Indiana University, for personal or departmental Linux or Unix systems support, see At IU, how do I get support for Linux or Unix?
