Compress reduces the size of the named files using adaptive Lempel-Ziv
coding.  Whenever possible, each file is replaced by one with the
extension .Z, while keeping the same ownership modes, access and
modification times.  If no files are specified, the standard input is
compressed to the standard output.  Compressed files can be restored
to their original form using uncompress or zcat.
