Compressing and Uncompressing

You can compress or uncompress the marked files.  Dired refuses to
compress files ending in `.Z' (which are already compressed) or
symbolic links (the link would be overwritten by a plain, compressed
file) and to uncompress files not ending in `.Z'.

     (`dired-do-compress') Compress the marked files.

     (`dired-do-uncompress') Uncompress the marked files.
