Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Zutils is a collection of utilities able to deal with any combination of compressed and uncompressed 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, ztest and zupdate.
The supported formats are bzip2, gzip, lzip and xz.
The compressor to be used for each format is configurable at runtime.

Zcat, zcmp, zdiff, and zgrep are improved replacements for the shell scripts provided with GNU gzip. Ztest is unique to zutils. Zupdate is similar to gzip's znew.

Changes in this version:

* The zutils executable has been removed. All utilities are now independent executables.

  * The new option "-k, --keep" has been added to zupdate.

* The exit status of zgrep should now be identical to that of grep in case of error.


Regards,
Antonio Diaz, zutils author and maintainer.
