Lzd 1.2-rc2 is ready for testing here

The sha256sums are:
727dbf8c792b6f79d0221b9c0ee79d7e9cf193db77657454f1a77238cc9d01ce lzd-1.2-rc2.tar.lz 6731a41e76f8658cec6beb585649277d3a14422ea0fa01a7b9b32904ad00d03e lzd-1.2-rc2.tar.gz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

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.

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 is compliant with the lzip specification; it verifies the 3 integrity factors.

The source of lzd is also used as a reference in the description of the media type 'application/lzip'.
See http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-diaz-lzip

Lzd decompresses from standard input to standard output. It accepts (and ignores) the option '-d' for compatibility with other lzip tools. In particular, accepting the option '-d' allows lzd to be used as argument to the option '--lz' of the tools from the zutils package.

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:

  * Lzd now prints a license notice in the usage information.

  * 3 new test files have been added to the testsuite.

If you care about interoperability and long-term archiving, please help me replace xz with lzip. See http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip_benchmark.html#xz1
