_resize Utility - Resize Files


call "_resize"{,filelist}


The _resize utility resizes all files contained in filelist, including programs. If the file to be resized is a program, the program will be rebuilt and is useful if the size of the program has decreased. The PRO/5 SAVE verb will increase the size of the program on disk but never decrease it. If the program has decreased in size, then there is unused space in the disk file. The _resize program removes that unused space.

If the file is not a program, the current file parameters will be displayed. The values displayed cannot be reduced. If the new values are different than the current values, the file will be resized.

BBj does not support resizing of programs.
