I may have missed this in the recent discussion about file compression,
but is there a DOS equivalent to the UNIX compress/uncompress
utilities? The reason I ask is as follows:
Through the magic of computer science, our LAN of PC's is
now hooked up through the INTERNET. This means I can get
selected GenBank files quickly. But many are compressed.
What I would like to do is FTP the compressed files and
uncompress them on my PC. This was easy when I had my 386i
but, thank goodness, that monster is now gone and I now have
a plain vanilla PC.
