Description Christopher Meng 2015-09-08 04:15:32 EDT

SRPM URL: http://cicku.me/pixz-1.0.3-1.fc24.src.rpm
Description: Pixz (pronounced pixie) is a parallel, indexing version of xz.

** pixz vs xz

The existing XZ Utils provide great compression in the .xz file format, but they produce just one big block of compressed data. Pixz instead produces a collection of smaller blocks which makes random access to the original data possible. This is especially useful for large tarballs.

** Differences to xz

* Automatically indexes tarballs during compression.
* Supports parallel decompression, which xz does not.
* Defaults to using all available CPU cores, while xz defaults to using only one core.
* Provides -i and -o command line options to specify input and output file.
