What is .z file extension?

Compressed file used to store, or "pack," files on Unix-based machines; incorporates a simple compression algorithm that is used to archive files and save disk space; can be decompressed on a Unix system by typing uncompress filename.z, where "filename.z" is the name of the file to decompress.
