|Summary||0004083: gzip's --rsyncable option not detailed in manpages|
|Description||the --rsyncable option for gzip is not mentioned in the gzip manpage, though it does appear to be enabled in the gzip program itself.|
This is what's in the gzip manpage on Debian:
While compressing, synchronize the output occasionally based on the
input. This increases size by less than 1 percent most cases, but means
that the rsync(1) program can much more efficiently synchronize files
compressed with this flag. gunzip cannot tell the difference between a
compressed file created with this option, and one created without it.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I confirm this is still an issue in CentOS 6.3.
gzip --help does include the --rsyncable option, as does the (Tex)info page but the man page does not.
