First of all, I would like to thank you writing this wonder program.

While I am experimenting this program, I observed that the maximum CPUs plzip will use is 1000% (equivalent to 10 CPUs). I have tried to use --threads=32 or default, but CPU usage capped on 1000%.

I am not sure if this is by design, something I did not do right, or is a bug.

I used the following two command lines.

1. plzip -9 file
2. plzip -9 --threads=32 file

The plzip version is below.

# plzip --version
Plzip 1.0
