You're not kidding about zipping a save file.  Usually around 75%   
compress afterwards.

I've Tried PKZip for the 400 but it takes WAY too long to compress stuff.   
 Has anyone had any better luck?  I believe this is the same company that   
makes pkzip for the pc.  Uncompressing isn't so bad, though.

If you don't want to write a program to get the data from the file to
save file you can also do a SNDNETF to yourself (or QSECOFR if your
user ID is not in directory entries)  and restore using WRKNETF to
the savf, the AS/400 won't care as long as the PF was 528 bytes long.
This how we send out one of our AS/400 products on PC disketts,
Amasing how much you can get on a diskett when you zip a savfile!!
