What are archived documents?

What does the .Z file extension mean?

Note: The .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
Windows 7-Zip
DOS 7-Zip
Mac OS or Mac OS X Built-in Archive Utility
Unix compress (enter uncompress filename.Z , where filename is the name of your file)
VM/CMS compress
Amiga gzip124x2.lha

At Indiana University, for personal or departmental Linux or Unix systems support, see At IU, how do I get support for Linux or Unix?
