Plzip is a 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.
What's New in This Release:В· Match length limits set by options -1 to -9 have been changed to match those of lzip 1.11.
В· A limit has been set on the number of packets produced by decompressor worker threads to limit the amount of memory used. Do not show the message "and `--stdout' was not specified" for file types that can't be read (directories, etc).
В· A warning about fchown's return value being ignored has been fixed.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
