Gzip is a widely used file compression utility, developed by Mark Adler and Jean Loup Gailly. The source code and algorithm for the gzip are well documented and widely available, so that it is easy to create gzip-compatible programs. A file compressed by gzip or a compatible utility tipically has an extension that ends in .gz.
