Clzip is a free, open source and lossless data compressor software based on the LZMA algorithm, with very safe integrity checking and a user interface similar to the one of the bzip2 or gzip applications.

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.
