Until DOS supports links (I can dream), simple copy GZIP.EXE to both
GUNZIP.EXE and ZCAT.EXE, and you will then have the gunzip and zcat
The program recognizes its name, and if it matches the pattern "UN*"
(i.e. uncompress, uncomp, ungzip, unpack) then it will go into
uncompress mode. If the name matches "?CAT*" (zcat, pcat, gcat) then
it will uncompress to standard output.
