sif to sifz using command line

Is it possible to convert a sif file to a sifz file using the command line?

I’ve got a load of sif files I’ve created using the Inkscape exporter that I’d like to convert to sifz files and I’d like to automate this process if possible.

I think they’re just tar.gz packed with a sifz extension. Try compressing and renaming.

Thanks - I’ll give it a go!

I guess you’ve achieved it already but the code is this:

$gzip myfile.sif $mv myfile.sif.gz myfile.sifz

I don’t know how to do it in a pipe way.
