mscompress [ -h ] mscompress [ -V ] mscompress [ name ... ]
Mscompress reduces the size of the named files using Lempel-Ziv coding (LZ77). Each input file is compressed to file eding with underscore and original file remains untouched. Output files then can be decompressed using Microsoft EXPAND.EXE utility or msexpand(1). In other words, mscompress(1) is binary compatible with Microsoft's COMPRESS.EXE
Mscompress cannot compress standard input as gzip(1) or compress(1) do.
