Compress files for flash filesystems
deflate [options] [filename]...
The deflate utility compresses files for a flash filesystem. It's intended to be used in conjunction with the filter attribute for mkefs. It can also be used to precompress files intended for a flash filesystem.
The compression types (specified with the -t option) are:
|Type||Compression Speed||Decompression Speed||Compression Amount|
|1||Fast||Very fast||30% on executables|
|2||Slow||Fast||45% on executables|
Deflate all executables that are to be placed on an embedded target:
deflate -v /target/bin/* /target/lib/*
Inflate a previously deflated file:
deflate -i deflated_file
Deflate file without changing the input file:
deflate -o file.dfl file
Deflate only those files that are reduced in size by 30% or more:
deflate -vp30 /target/readonly_data/*
