Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

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.

The homepage is at http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip.html.

Changes in this version:

* Lziprecover is now able to repair any 1-byte error in the lzma stream
of damaged lzip files.

* Decompressor has been modified to detect file errors earlier,
improving efficiency of lziprecover's new repair capability. This change
also prevents (harmless) access to uninitialized memory when
decompressing a corrupt file.

on Win32, the open with o_binary don't seem to work, as the testsuites are failing. Forcing with setmode in decoder.cc readblock and writeblock makes it pass.

I have attached a patch that shows my quick and dirty changes.

Possibly there is a text mode file descriptor leaking in. Any ideas?
