XZ-format compression utilities - tiny decompressors

XZ is the successor to the Lempel-Ziv/Markov-chain Algorithm compression format, which provides memory-hungry but powerful compression (often better than bzip2) and fast, easy decompression.

This package provides the xzdec and lzmadec utilities, which write the decompressed version of a compressed file to standard output. The binaries are very small, so they can be easily stored on small media with some compressed files, and they are linked statically against liblzma so they can be used on machines without a compatible version of liblzma installed. However, they have:

* no compression support; * no support for writing to a file other than standard output; * no translated messages; * been optimized for size rather than speed.

For a full-featured xzcat command without these limitations, use the xz-utils package instead.

Package version:5.0.0-2

XZ Utils FAQ

Q:  What do the letters XZ mean?

A:  Nothing. They are just two letters, which come from the file format
    suffix .xz. The .xz suffix was selected, because it seemed to be
    pretty much unused. It has no deeper meaning.

Q:  What are LZMA and LZMA2?

A:  LZMA stands for Lempel-Ziv-Markov chain-Algorithm. It is the name
    of the compression algorithm designed by
