Please, test it and report any bugs you find.
Zutils is a collection of utilities able to deal with any combination of
compressed and non-compressed files transparently. If any given file,
including standard input, is compressed, its decompressed content is
used. Compressed files are decompressed on the fly; no temporary files
are created. These utilities are not wrapper scripts but safer and more
efficient C++ programs. In particular the "--recursive" option is very
efficient in those utilities supporting it.
The provided utilities are zcat, zcmp, zdiff, zgrep and ztest.
The supported compressors are bzip2, gzip, lzip and xz.

This version is also available in lzip format. If your distro doesn't
yet distribute the lzip program, you can download it from
Changes in this version:
* A deadlock in zcmp.cc, which happened when files differ, has been
* A deadlock in zgrep.cc, which happened when a binary file matches,
has been fixed.
