What's new in Plzip 1.3:

  • Testing of a non-seekable file or of standard input now uses up to 30 MiB less memory per thread.
  • "-dvvv" and "-tvvv" now show the dictionary size of the first member, producing the same output as lzip for single-member files.
  • Chapters "Memory requirements" and "Minimum file sizes" have been added to the manual.
  • The targets "install-compress", "install-strip-compress", "install-info-compress" and "install-man-compress" have been added to the Makefile.

Plzip is an open source and massively parallel (multi-threaded) 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.

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:

./configure
make
sudo make install
plzip
