Lzd 0.6 is ready for testing here

Please, note that I have created the subdirectory 'lzd' in order to leave every tarball in its place "permanently" (instead of moving old tarballs to the "old" directory). This will break some things now (like watch files), but I have been told that it will be easier for distros this way. Sorry for the inconveniences.

The sha1sums are:
7e088cceb714506623f332d5810bc6973383833d  lzd-0.6.tar.lz
c7f56f3942c8c13471caa5da1db2931d6508bac2  lzd-0.6.tar.gz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Lzd is a 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:

  * Minor changes. Synchronized with lzip 1.16.

Antonio Diaz, lzd author and maintainer.
