Compressing a Test Suite

The File|Compress menu compresses a profile by gzipping the files that contain the data (i.e. all files with non-zero size except relations). After being compressed [incr tsdb()] treats the data as read-only: you can still browse , analyse and compare, but cannot reparse or treebank. The status is set to ro (read-only). There is no way to undo this from inside [incr tsdb()]. If you wish to decompress then you must ungzip the files externally.

A quick way of compressing a profile in this way using a shell is (assuming you are in the profile):

 find . -size +0 -type f -not -name 'relations' -exec gzip {} \;
