in reply to Wanted: perl equivalent of Solaris compress utility

...and because gzip was not bundled with the OS until 2.8, IIRC. They've only recently started bundling seemingly neccessary utilities like top, ssh, and bash. I think top was included in Solaris 9?

Basically, when I need to restore my system from backups after a crash, I can be sure that compress is there, but not sure about gzip.
