Command Line Utility for HFS+ Compressed Files
Authored by: brkirch on Nov 20, '09 05:19:14PM

The latest version of afsctool will only fail to compress a file if one of the following is true:
-the file has a resource fork
-the file has a zero length data fork
-the file is not a regular file (if it is for example, a symbolic link)
-the file will become larger after compression is applied
-the file is greater than 2 GiB in size
-there are insufficient privileges to change the file
-user specified conditions aren't met
