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.
