The sha1sum 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 lzd homepage is at http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzd.html

Changes in this version:

* Code reorganization. All the code is now contained in a single file (lzd.cc).

Antonio Diaz, lzd author and maintainer.
