Question description

Hello, could you please assist me with this discussion question? Thanks.
  • Research the Internet or create your own files which meet the following criteria:
    • a) gzip compresses by more than 80 percent
    • b) gzip compresses by less than 10 percent
    • c) gets larger when compressed with gzip

Use ls –l to determine the sizes of the files in question. Then, determine whether or not you can characterize the files in a, b, and c. Document your personal findings and include your references if you used any.

  • Determine whether or not you would recommend using gzip over other compression utilities like the Microsoft Windows WinZip tool. Justify your response
