Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Lzip is a lossless data compressor with a user interface similar to the
one of gzip or bzip2. Lzip is about as fast as gzip, compresses most
files more than bzip2, and is better than both from a data recovery
perspective. Lzip is a clean implementation of the LZMA "algorithm".

The lzip file format is designed for data sharing and long-term archiving, taking into account both data integrity and decoder availability. It is as simple as possible (but not simpler), provides very safe 4 factor integrity checking, and is backed by the recovery capabilities of lziprecover.

A nice feature of the lzip format is that a corrupt byte is easier to repair the nearer it is from the beginning of the file. Therefore, with the help of lziprecover, losing an entire archive just because of a corrupt byte near the beginning is a thing of the past.

Changes in this version:

* The compression code has been reorganized to ease the porting of the fast encoder to clzip and lzlib.

* The targets "install-compress", "install-strip-compress", "install-info-compress" and "install-man-compress" have been added to the Makefile.
