Lossless LZMA-based data compression
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 data compressor based on the LZMA (Lempel-Ziv-Markov
chain-Algorithm) algorithm designed by Igor Pavlov. 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 it
Changes in version 1.4:
This version produces version 1 files with support for safe recovery of
undamaged members from multimember files.
The new option "--member-size", that produces multimember files, has
The new option "--volume-size", that splits the compressed output into
several volume files, has been added.
The new option "--output", that sends output to a file when reading
