    Unanswered: GZIP flat file after creating it using utl_file in a procedure in a package

    How can I "GZIP" a flat file that is created by using utl_file in a procedure that is in a package or for that fact in a standalone procedure?

    Oracle 10G R2 and/or 8i, OS is Unix.

    Any help, info, direction is appreciated....

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    I easily found info on this on
    Search for "running unix command from pl/sql" or something similar
    Apparently there are ways to do it from a java stored proc, or pl/sql via dbms_pipe

    I haven't personally used any of these, so have fun...
