invalid compressed data error
Greetings to all of you. This is my first post, so please forgive my nervousness.
I have been sent a file: filename.dat.gz.
When I put gzip -d filename.dat.gz, I get the following error message:
invalid compressed data--format violated
I also tried this with gunzip. Am I doing something wrong and how do I fix it?:scratch:
Thanks for all your help,
Googling for deccompressing dat.gz files doesn't reveal much, but your attempt appears correct. You might try zcat, which is the same as gunzip -c, but if that doesn't work, it could be that the file was compressed incorrectly.
Sorry couldn't be more help.
