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

Clzip uses the lzip file format; the files produced by clzip are fully compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer. Clzip is in fact a C language version of lzip, intended for embedded devices or systems lacking a C++ compiler.

The lzip file format is designed for data sharing and long-term archiving, taking into account both data integrity and decoder availability.

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

Changes in this version:

  * The option '-l, --list' has been ported from lziprecover.

* It is now an error to specify two or more different operations in the command line (--decompress, --list or --test).

  * Compression time of option '-0' has been reduced by 6%.

  * Compression time of options '-1' to '-9' has been reduced by 1%.

  * Decompression time has been reduced by 7%.

* Three chapters have been added to the manual, which now contains all the chapters of the lzip manual.
