Version 0.2 of lzd is ready for testing here

The md5sum is:

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Lzd is a very simplified decompressor for lzip files with an educational purpose. Studying its source is a good first step to understand how lzip works. It is not safe to use lzd for any real work.

The source of lzd is used in the lzip manual as a reference decompressor in the description of the lzip file format. Reading the lzip manual will help you understand the source.

Lzd decompresses from standard input to standard output. Lzd will correctly decompress the concatenation of two or more compressed files. The result is the concatenation of the corresponding decompressed data. Integrity of such concatenated compressed input is also verified.

The lzip homepage is at http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip.html
(Lzd does not have a homepage of its own).

Changes in this version:

  * Added a missing "#include" for OS/2.

Antonio Diaz, lzd author and maintainer.
