Hi All,

Is there an easy way of determing whether a string//filename ends in
*.gz? using /bin/sh?  I spend around 20 minutes cobbling together 
scripts to burn ISO files last night.  Then blindly wasted one CD-R file that 
was gzipped..... tar barfs on you,but cdrecord dev=foo.gz writes
exactly that.   I'd like to add a line that yells at me, then gunzips and does 
an MD5; then writes.   (In C, no prob; C lets me fly, but not /bin/sh.
But anyway, if any guru can clue me in, thanks. I think my brain is in Maui
for a few days.

tiam
