A Program for Compressing Files
The xz command is a very powerful program for compressing files. * Average compression ratio of LZMA is about 30% better than that of gzip, and 15% better than that of bzip2. * Decompression speed is only little slower than that of gzip, being two to five times faster than bzip2. * In fast mode, compresses faster than bzip2 with a comparable compression ratio. * Achieving the best compression ratios takes four to even twelve times longer than with bzip2. However. this doesn't affect decompressing speed. * Very similar command line interface to what gzip and bzip2 have.
