Lzip is a lossless data compressor with a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2. Lzip is about as fast as gzip, compresses most files more than bzip2, and is better than both from a data recovery perspective.

The lzip file format is designed for data sharing and long-term archiving, taking into account both data integrity and decoder availability.

The lzlib compression library provides in-memory LZMA compression and decompression functions, including integrity checking of the decompressed data.

The lzip family also includes a multi-threaded compressor (plzip), a data recovery tool (lziprecover), a C version (clzip), a small decompressor (lunzip), and an educational decompressor (lzd).
