Gunzip is a really great tool for compressing your files into smaller ones. It's really easy to use and also reliably consistent, which is great for when I'm trying to save space on my drive. I wasn't expecting to like this tool so much, but it doesn't have the same algorithm issue as LZW's compress so I use it frequently. Recommended.
