    plzip 1.4 - a massively parallel OPEN-SOURCE-compressor based on LZMA/lzlib

    anyone knows this new plzip - program ?

    but i can not find a windows 32 binary ...


    Plzip uses the lzip file format;
    the files produced by plzip are fully compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer.

    Plzip is intended for faster compression/decompression of big files on multiprocessor machines, which makes it specially well suited for distribution of big software files and large scale data archiving. On files big enough, plzip can use hundreds of processors.

    it seems interesting ...

    can someone here please build a win32 binary ?

    best regards

    * Version 1.4 released.
    * Option '-0' now uses the fast encoder of lzlib 1.7.

    2015-01-22 Antonio Diaz Diaz <>

    * Version 1.3 released.
    * Do not use output packets or muxer when testing.
    * Make '-dvvv' and '-tvvv' show dictionary size like lzip.
    * lzip.h: Added missing 'const' to the declaration of 'compress'.
    * Added chapters 'Memory requirements' and 'Minimum file sizes'
    to manual.
    * Added new targets 'install*-compress'.

    2014-08-29 Antonio Diaz Diaz <>

    * Version 1.2 released.
    * (close_and_set_permissions): Behave like 'cp -p'.
    * Make 'slot_av' a vector to limit
    the number of packets produced by each worker individually.
    * plzip.texinfo: Renamed to plzip.texi.
    * plzip.texi: Documented the approximate amount of memory required.
    * License changed to GPL version 2 or later.
