LZMAINFO(1)			   XZ Utils			   LZMAINFO(1)

NAME
       lzmainfo	- show infomation stored in the	.lzma file header

SYNOPSIS
       lzmainfo	[--help] [--version] [file]...

DESCRIPTION
       lzmainfo	 shows	information  stored in the .lzma file header. It reads
       the first 13 bytes from the specified file,  decodes  the  header,  and
       prints  it to standard output in	human readable format. If no files are
       given or	file is	-, standard input is read.

       Usually the most	interesting information	is the uncompressed  size  and
       the dictionary size. Uncompressed size can be shown only	if the file is
       in the non-streamed .lzma format	variant. The amount of memory required
       to  decompress  the  file  is a few dozen kilobytes plus	the dictionary
       size.

       lzmainfo	is included in XZ Utils	primarily for  backward	 compatibility
       with LZMA Utils.

EXIT STATUS
       0      All is good.

       1      An error occurred.

BUGS
       lzmainfo	 uses  MB  while the correct suffix would be MiB (2^20 bytes).
       This is to keep the output compatible with LZMA Utils.
