ncompress

Original Lempel-Ziv compress/uncompress programs

Variants:
This package provides the original programs that are the de facto standard, in much of the UNIX community, for compressing and uncompressing files. The programs implement a fast, simple LZW file compression algorithm. The LZW algorithm does not have as high a rate of compression as some other algorithms, but LZW implementations such as this one often compress files faster than other, similar programs such as gzip.

For Debian, the standard uncompress program is installed as uncompress.real.

This package contains a copyright notice from one of the original authors in the file /usr/share/doc/ncompress/README.Debian.

/usr/share/doc/ncompress/README

This is version 4.2 of (N)compress (an improved version of compress 4.1).

Compress is a fast, simple LZW file compressor.  Compress does not have
the highest compression rate, but it is one of the fastest programs to
compress data.  Compress is the defacto standard in the UNIX community
for compressing files.

'build' is a menu driven shell script for compiling, testing and
installing (N)compress

General Notes
-------------

In this package, 'uncompress' is installed as 'uncompress.real' to avoid
conflict with the gzip package.  Most of the utility scripts distributed with
the source code (zdiff, zmore, zcmp) are not installed.

The uncompress.real program installed to /usr/bin is just a symlink to the
compress program.  Same goes for the uncompress.real manpage in
/usr/share/man/man1.
