Lzip is an open source lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, which features a user interface similar to the one of bzip2 and very safe integrity checking.
Lzip is able to decompress almost as fast as the gzip tool and compresses much better than the bzip2 utility, making it well suited for software distribution.
