changelog

Lbzip2 is an open source pthreads-based parallel bunzip2/bzip2 filter, passable to GNU tar with the --use-compress-program option. Unfortunately, the software isn't restricted to regular files on input, nor output.

In other words, Lbzip2 is a SMP-based, parallel and bzip2-compatible compression utility, which features a command-line very similar to the one from the bzip2 utility.

The application uses the Gnulib library to build and test processes, which are managed by the GNU build system.

Lbzip2 strives to be portable by requiring UNIX 98 APIs only, besides an unmodified libbz2. Its main target is UNIX-like systems, including Linux and BSD variants.
