Parallel BZIP2 1.1.6

Parallel BZIP2 project is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block.
Parallel BZIP2 project is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block- sorting file compressor that uses pthreads and achieves near-linear speedup on SMP machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 1.0.2 (ie: anything compressed with PBZIP2 can be decompressed with bzip2).

PBZIP2 should work on any system that has a pthreads compatible C++ compiler (such as gcc). It has been tested on: Linux, Windows (cygwin & MinGW), Solaris, Tru64/OSF1, HP-UX, and Irix.
