I think we agree!

What I referred to is that 'gzip' does great in compressing text, and the result is a binary file. Now that file can be compressed further by 'compress'. But I haven't done that since the RT or early RS\6000 days. I don't even know if 'compress' on AIX 6.1 or 7.1 exists( my in-house box with AIX 5.2 has it ), but I found it "funny" to see the ".qz.Z" and remembered when it was done. I pointed it out in case the file was being created differently then the OP thought.

I just fired up last week a Debian AMD box with 8-core and 4-2TB drives.

Why bother with compression!
