Lziprecover is a data recovery tool and decompressor for files in the lzip compressed data format (.lz) able to repair slightly damaged files, recover badly damaged files from two or more copies, extract undamaged members from multi-member files, decompress files, test integrity of files, extract a range of bytes from a file, and list the correct size of multi-member files.

Lziprecover is able to recover or decompress files produced by any of the compressors in the lzip family; lzip, plzip, minilzip/lzlib, clzip and pdlzip. This recovery capability contributes to make the lzip format one of the best options for long-term data archiving.

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

Changes in this version:

* The new option "-i, --ignore-errors", which in conjunction with "-D" decompresses all the recoverable data in all members of a file without having to split the file first, has been added.

* "--split" now uses as few digits as possible in the names of the files produced, depending on the number of members in the input file. The limit of 99999 members in a file has been removed.

* "--split" in verbose mode now shows the names of the files being created.
