gzip

https://www.gnu.org/software/gzip/
compress and decompress files

A compression utility designed to replace 'compress'. Much better compression and freedom from patented algorithms are its main advantages over compress. Gzip decompresses files created by gzip, compress, or pack; it detects the input format automatically.
