Clzip 1.5 / 1.6 Pre1
An Open Source C implementation of lzip for Linux/UNIX systems lacking a C++ compiler
Clzip is a clean implementation of the LZMA algorithm, designed to decompress files almost as fast as gzip, and it is able to compress files better than bzip2, which makes it well suited for data archiving and software distribution.
By using the lzip file format, Clzip produces files fully compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer. It is also known as the C language version of lzip, intended for systems or embedded devices that lack a C++ compiler.

What's New in version 1.6 Pre1
- Copying of file dates, permissions, and ownership now behaves like "cp -p". (If the user ID or the group ID can't be duplicated, the file permission bits S_ISUID and S_ISGID are cleared).
- "clzip.texinfo" has been renamed to "clzip.texi".
