I need Gzip to pre-zip some static files for a webserver I'm building. All of the files I need to gzip will be in a folder named
.cache. Since some clients may not accept responses that are gzipped, I would like to keep all of the original files when I gzip them. Is there any command I can use to recursively gzip the files in my
.cache folder while still keeping the original files? Will this command gzip gzipped files (ones that are postfixed with .gz already) if run on a folder with already gzipped files?
While we're on the topic of gzip: I've been looking for a way to gzip text input passed to gzip instead of files. I came up with postfixing a dash on the command (like
gzip -c -), but I'm not sure if that will work or how I use it. Can anyone explain?
