The RISC OS port that was availlable of gnuzip wouldn't run on my strongarm
machine, so I've made a quick and dirty port (I don't know for sure if it is
dirty, but it sure was quick) of it.
As far as I know it does the trick. At the moment I haven't got a website to
put it on, but if anybody is interested in it, mail me.
gnu zip is the unix equivalent of !Squash, it can compress and decompress
files. It is needed to decompress eq. netBSD kernel images. Files that have
been compressed using gnu zip cannot be read with !Sparkplug and usually have
the dos-extension .gz (/gz)
