Plzip 1.1 / 1.2 RC 2
Multi-threaded and lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm
Plzip uses the lzip file format; the files produced by plzip are fully compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer.
Plzip is intended for faster compression/decompression of big files on multiprocessor machines, which makes it specially well suited for distribution of big software files and large scale data archiving. On files big enough, plzip can use hundreds of processors.
How to install and run: Unarchive, open a Terminal window, go to the Plzip's folder and run the following commands from the command line:
sudo make install
