Plzip is a massively parallel (multi-threaded), lossless data compressor
based on the lzlib compression library, with very safe integrity
checking and a user interface similar to the one of bzip2, gzip or lzip.
Plzip uses the lzip file format; the files produced by plzip are fully
compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer, and can be rescued with lziprecover.

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.
