Old Unix 'compress' (.Z) utility?
I can't seem to find a version of the old Unix 'compress' utility, that
generates .Z files. I know that gzip provides better compression, and
can uncompress .Z files, but it won't work for me.
I'm exporting some files to Minix, and Minix doesn't have a gzip port for
all versions. I seem to recall that the compress algorithm has some patent
issues, but even so, I thought it was still allowed. A search on
www.debian.org does not turn anything up, even in non-free. Any hope for a
Debian package, or should I look elsewhere?
