Clzip is a lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, with very safe integrity checking and a user interface similar to that of gzip or bzip2. Clzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses better than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution and data archiving. Clzip uses the lzip file format; the files produced by clzip are fully compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer, and can be rescued with lziprecover. Clzip is, in fact, a C language implementation of lzip, intended for embedded devices or systems lacking a C++ compiler.
Release Notes: Decompression time has been reduced by 1%. The file version is now shown only if verbosity >= 4. The option "-n, --threads" is now accepted and ignored for compatibility with plzip. "configure" now accepts options with a separate argument.
Release Notes: Compression ratio has been slightly increased. Compression time has been reduced by 10%. Decompression time has been reduced by 8%. The targets "install-as-lzip" and "install-bin" have been added to the Makefile.
