The sha1sum is:

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.
Zutils uses external compressors. 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 by GNU gzip. Ztest is unique to zutils. Zupdate is similar to gzip's znew.

Changes in this version:

  * zupdate now passes '-q' to zcmp if specified in the command line.

* zdiff now uses '_' as separator if both temporary file names are otherwise different. For example 'xxx_file.lz' and 'xxx_file.gz'.

* A configure warning happening on some shells when testing for g++ has been fixed.

Antonio Diaz, zutils author and maintainer.
