That's so cool -- that here on netcom I can gzip the few
programs I need to run that I have to have in my own
max of 5.5mb "free" disk, with out paying $$$ extra.

I looked at the man file for gzexe, found nothing about
how to set up such a combined sh-script---gz'd binary.

Do you have anything on it, or can you maybe point me
at it?  

(I reply to the list because others might have restricted
diskspace on their isp too, so maybe others could use this
info too.)
