Converting PGC to SVGZ

PGC is an archaic image format associated with Atari Portfolio — the first palmtop computer in the world, released in 1989. It is a small and simple raster graphics format, using RLE compression and offering limited quality. The PGC format is currently considered obsolete and rare, and it might be difficult to find an image viewer that can open it.

SVGZ is an extension attached to SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) images with GZIP compression. Such files can contain animations or interactive graphics, including vector objects, images and text, while supporting layer rendering, transparency, filter effects and several other features. As a version of SVG, the SVGZ format is based on an open standard and uses the XML markup language, being supported by most web browsers. The main advantage of SVGZ over its uncompressed variant is size, which can be 20 to 50 percent smaller.

So, how to change PGC into SVGZ?
