changelog

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.

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

In addition, Lzip replaces every file given in the command line with a compressed version of itself, with the name "original_name.lz". Each compressed file has the same modification date, permissions, and, when possible, ownership as the corresponding original, so that these properties can be correctly restored at decompression time.

Furthermore, Lzip will correctly decompress a file which is the concatenation of two or more compressed files. The result is the concatenation of the corresponding uncompressed files. Integrity testing of concatenated compressed files is also supported.

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

./configure
make
sudo make install
lzip
