./archivers/lzip, Lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.17, Package name: lzip-1.17, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Lzip is a lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, with
very safe integrity checking and a user interface similar to the one of
gzip or bzip2. Lzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses
better than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution
and data archiving.

Changes in version 1.16:

Compression ratio of option -9 has been slightly increased.
Compression time has been reduced by 4%.
"lzip -0" is now comparable in compression speed and ratio to \ 
"gzip -6".

Copying of file dates, permissions, and ownership now behaves like "cp -p".
(If the user ID or the group ID can't be duplicated, the file permission
bits S_ISUID and S_ISGID are cleared).

Some minor improvements have been made.
"lzip.texinfo" has been renamed to "lzip.texi".
The license has been changed to GPL version 2 or later.
