I am pleased to announce the release of lzd 1.0.

Lzd is a simplified decompressor for the lzip format 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

The sources can be downloaded from http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/lzip/lzd/

The sha256sums are:

Changes in version 1.0:

  * Minor code improvements have been made.

  * The tests have been improved.

Antonio Diaz, lzd author and maintainer.

If you are distributing software in xz format, please consider using lzip instead. See http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/xz_inadequate.html and http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip_benchmark.html#busybox
