zip the file


Hi all,

I have the below scripts on the bourne shell to backup my database every day:

#!/bin/bash
ORACLE_SID=test
export ORACLE_SID
ORACLE_HOME=/home/oracle/product/9.2.0
export ORACLE_HOME
NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1
export NLS_LANG


/home/oracle/product/9.2.0/bin/exp system/one4all
file=/u02/backup/$ORACLE_SID/exp_$ORACLE_SID.dmp
log=/u02/backup/$ORACLE_SID/exp_$ORACLE_SID.log full=y direct=y



could someone please give me the next command line to zip the .dmp file???

thanks so much

You could just use gzip to zip it up in a gz format..

gzip <filename>

For any special options man gzip to see the man pages. But from what I've seen when zipping individual files, you might not see much compression to save in size.. so it might not even be worth it at times. It comes really handy when you have mulitiple files you want to zip up, etc.
