Pdlzip is a command line based and public domain lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, with very safe integrity checking and a user interface similar to the one of bzip2 or gzip.

Pdlzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses better than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution and data archiving.

Pdlzip is also able to decompress legacy lzma-alone (.lzma) files.

Pdlzip is a limited, public domain version of the lzip data compressor, designed for people who can't distribute GPL licensed free software. Pdlzip is written in C.

How to install and run: Unarchive, open a Terminal window, go into Pdlzip's folder and run the following commands from the command line:

sudo make install
