Lzip is a lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, with very safe
integrity checking and a user interface almost identical to the one of
bzip2. Lzip is only a data compressor, not an archiver. It has no facilities
for multiple files, encryption, or archive-splitting, but, in the Unix
tradition, relies instead on separate external utilities such as GNU Tar for
Lzip is a lossless file compressor based on the LZMA (Lempel-Ziv-Markov
chain-Algorithm) algorithm. The high compression of LZMA comes from
combining two basic, well-proven compression ideas: sliding dictionaries
(i.e. LZ77/78), and markov models (i.e. the thing used by every
compression algorithm that uses a range encoder or similar order-0
entropy coder as its last stage) with segre
Changes in version 0.3:
This release compresses a 15% faster but produces files a 1% larger.
Option "--test" now takes precedence over option "--stdout".
When finished decompressing, "done" is shown instead of "ok".
