But beware badly written programs. One vendor's (who shall remain
unamed) version of compress did not used to check the status of
close(). As a result if you were near to over quota in AFS and
you effectively did:
cp /dev/null largish.file.Z
which did make your quota situation better, but not in the way
you thought it would.... :)
