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

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.22, Package name: lzip-1.22, 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.

Log message:
lzip: update to 1.22.

Changes in version 1.22:

Lzip now reports an error if a file name is empty (lzip -t "").

Option '-o, --output' now behaves like '-c, --stdout', but sending the
output unconditionally to a file instead of to standard output. See the new
description of '-o' in the manual. This change is backwards compatible only
when (de)compressing from standard input alone. Therefore commands like:
  lzip -o foo.lz - bar < foo
must now be split into:
  lzip -o foo.lz - < foo
  lzip bar
or rewritten as:
  lzip - bar < foo > foo.lz

When using '-c' or '-o', lzip now checks whether the output is a terminal
only once.

Lzip now does not even open the output file if the input file is a terminal.

Lzip can now be built, tested, and installed on systems lacking a 'make'
program. (Feature suggested by Mohammad Akhlaghi).

The words 'decompressed' and 'compressed' have been replaced with the
shorter 'out' and 'in' in the verbose output when decompressing or testing.

Option '--list' now reports corruption or truncation of the last header in a
multimenber file specifically instead of showing the generic message "Last
member in input file is truncated or corrupt."

The commands needed to extract files from a tar.lz archive have been
documented in the manual, in the output of '--help', and in the man page.

Plzip and tarlz are mentioned in the manual as alternatives for

Several fixes and improvements have been made to the manual.

9 new test files have been added to the testsuite.

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Log message:
lzip: update to 1.20.

Changes in version 1.20:

The option '--loose-trailing', has been added.

The test used by lzip to discriminate trailing data from a corrupt
header in multimember or concatenated files has been improved to a
Hamming distance (HD) of 3, and the 3 bit flips must happen in different
magic bytes for the test to fail. As a consequence some kinds of files
no longer can be appended to a lzip file as trailing data unless the
'--loose-trailing' option is used when decompressing.
Lziprecover can be used to remove conflicting trailing data from a file.

The contents of a corrupt or truncated header found in a multimember
file are now shown, after the error message, in the same format as
trailing data.

Option '-S, --volume-size' now keeps input files unchanged.

When creating multimember files or splitting the output in volumes, the
dictionary size is now adjusted for each member individually.

The 'bits/byte' ratio has been replaced with the inverse compression
ratio in the output.

The progress of decompression is now shown at verbosity level 2 (-vv) or

Progress of (de)compression is only shown if stderr is a terminal.

A final diagnostic is now shown at verbosity level 1 (-v) or higher if
any file fails the test when testing multiple files.

A second '.lz' extension is no longer added to the argument of '-o' if
it already ends in '.lz' or '.tlz'.

In case of (de)compressed size mismatch, the stored size is now also
shown in hexadecimal to ease visual comparison.

The dictionary size is now shown at verbosity level 4 (-vvvv) when
decompressing or testing.

The new chapter "Meaning of lzip's output" has been added to the manual.

Log message:
Changes in version 1.19:

The option '-l, --list' has been ported from lziprecover.

It is now an error to specify two or more different operations in the
command line (--decompress, --list or --test).

Compression time of option '-0' has been slightly reduced.

Decompression time has been reduced by 2%.

In test mode, lzip now continues checking the rest of the files if any
input file is a terminal.

Trailing data are now shown both in hexadecimal and as a string of
printable ASCII characters.
