The pathcompress.tar file, which is part of the source distribution,
also contains sources for ls, rm, find, mkdir (simple but usefull
implementations) that work with the compressed paths (numeric or dosnames,
they use hackerlab vu- interface)
find shows the uncompressed filenames.
ls -l shows the numeric and compressed names side-by-side.
(I name them cls, crm, cfind, cmkdir and put them in tla/bin for
debugging, but they could be made to be vu-ls, vu-rm, vu-find, vu-mkdir
and put to general use)
