    Since you use your own script, I assume you wish to continue to do so (and not e.g. switch to my sitemap generator program *G*)

    So, what script language do you use? Have you tried searching Google for e.g. PHP + GZip?

    ok...I found this:

    http://it2.php.net/manual/en/function.gzencode.php


    <?php
    $data = implode("", file("bigfile.txt"));
    $gzdata = gzencode($data, 9);
    $fp = fopen("bigfile.txt.gz", "w");
    fwrite($fp, $gzdata);
    fclose($fp);
    ?> 
    Code (markup):
    do I have to do anything after saving the gzencoded data to a .xml.gz file??

    thanks
