[Sidefx-houdini-list] bgeo.gz and gzip with windows

As long as the Houdini Csh.exe can execute the programme you should be
able to use it from within Houdini. Open a Houdini C-shell and try
typing in the commands. If it's command not found, you likely need to
modify you path.

Anytime I use Houdini on Windows the first thing I do is install the
full Cygwin suite, so you have access to all these types of things. Be
warned that there are subtle differences between Linux commands and
Cygwin commands, I've been burned a few times by this.

> Hi there,
> Im having trouble finding any information on compressed bgeo.gz files with windows xp. Im not sure what is needed for gzip compression to save from houdini. I take it this isnt automated based on whats installed as i cant generate bgeo.gz files in anyway with either of these apps.
> Is there an environment variable we need to set to use a specified zip package? We would like to use 7-zip for this process.
