-t
Tests the new files before deleting originals.:
-v
Verbose. Display the name and percentage reduction for each file compressed.:
-9
Use the slowest compression method (optimal compression).:
-P
Use pipes for the conversion to reduce disk space usage.:
-K
Keep a .Z file when it is smaller than the .gz file; implies -t.:
