The !gunzip Command: Uncompress Files
Syntax: !gunzip infile [outfile]
This will uncompress the file given as infile, which was
previously compressed with gzip, and has a ``.gz''
extension. If no outfile is given, output is written to a file
with the same name as the infile but with the ``.gz''
suffix stripped. Under Unix/Linux this uses 64-bit file offsets so
can be applied to files larger than 2Gb, unlike some versions of the
GNU gunzip utility. Unlike the GNU gunzip program, this
will not delete infile.
