Subpackage Descriptions
single XZ Utils is free general-purpose data compression software with a high compression ratio. XZ Utils is the successor to LZMA Utils. The core of the XZ Utils compression code is based on the LZMA SDK. The primary compression algorithm is currently LZMA2, which is used inside the .xz container format. With typical files, XZ Utils creates output 30% smaller than gzip and 15% smaller than bzip2. The XZ Utils package consists of several components: * liblzma is a compression library with an API similar to that of zlib. * xz is a command line tool with syntax similar to that of gzip. * xzdec is a decompression-only tool smaller than the full-featured xz one. * A set of shell scripts (xzgrep, xzdiff, etc.) have been adapted from gzip to ease viewing, grepping, and comparing compressed files. * Emulation of the command line tools of LZMA Utils eases transition from LZMA Utils to XZ Utils.
