Example—Precompress a Text File

In this example, the source file is a text file named source.file which is precompressed into a destination file named compressed.file. The file is translated using the default translation table, /home/cd/ndm/xlate/def_send.xlt. Trailing blanks are stripped. Default settings for ZLIB tuning, checkpoint interval and block size are used.

         -i source.file
         -o compressed.file
         -x /home/cd/ndm/xlate/def_send.xlt
