Hello Johannes, Johannes Schauer wrote:
version 1.2 removed the zutils binary. I want to plead for its re-inclusion for the next zutils release.
This is not easy and only partially useful because version 1.1 provided 3 binaries (zcmp, zdiff and zutils).
Many distributions supply a gzip package which supplies the same binaries that zutils provides (zcat, zcmp, zdiff...) though of course limited to extracting gzip. So when one installs zutils, these binaries are replaced by the ones from zutils.
The way recommended by the gzip maintainers to solve this replacement is to rename the gzip scripts and man pages using "./configure --program-transform-name='s/^z/gz/'"
 http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gzip/2012-01/msg00005.html This is explained in the INSTALL file from zutils.
What do you think?
I hope the following naming scheme will prevail in the long term because it is more logical and thus produces less surprises:
zcat --> multi-format gzcat --> gzip-only bzcat --> bzip2-only Best regards, Antonio. _______________________________________________ Zutils-bug mailing list Zutilsemail@example.com https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/zutils-bug
