NAME
       lzip - reduces the size of files

SYNOPSIS
       lzip [options] [files]

DESCRIPTION
       Lzip - LZMA lossless data compressor.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
	      display this help	and exit

       -V, --version
	      output version information and exit

       -a, --trailing-error
	      exit with	error status if	trailing data

       -b, --member-size=<bytes>
	      set member size limit in bytes

       -c, --stdout
	      write to standard	output,	keep input files

       -d, --decompress
	      decompress

       -f, --force
	      overwrite	existing output	files

       -F, --recompress
	      force re-compression of compressed files

       -k, --keep
	      keep (don't delete) input	files

       -l, --list
	      print (un)compressed file	sizes

       -m, --match-length=<bytes>
	      set match	length limit in	bytes [36]

       -o, --output=<file>
	      if reading standard input, write to <file>

       -q, --quiet
	      suppress all messages

       -s, --dictionary-size=<bytes>
	      set dictionary size limit	in bytes [8 MiB]

       -S, --volume-size=<bytes>
	      set volume size limit in bytes

       -t, --test
	      test compressed file integrity

       -v, --verbose
	      be verbose (a 2nd	-v gives more)

       -0 .. -9
	      set compression level [default 6]

       --fast alias for	-0

       --best alias for	-9

       If  no  file  names  are	given, or if a file is '-', lzip compresses or
       decompresses from standard input	to standard output.   Numbers  may  be
       followed	by a multiplier: k = kB	= 10^3 = 1000, Ki = KiB	= 2^10 = 1024,
       M = 10^6, Mi = 2^20, G =	10^9, Gi = 2^30, etc...	 Dictionary  sizes  12
       to 29 are interpreted as	powers of two, meaning 2^12 to 2^29 bytes.

       The  bidimensional  parameter space of LZMA can't be mapped to a	linear
       scale optimal for all files. If your files are large, very  repetitive,
       etc,  you  may  need  to	 use  the --dictionary-size and	--match-length
       options directly	to achieve optimal performance.

       Exit status: 0 for a normal exit, 1 for	environmental  problems	 (file
       not  found, invalid flags, I/O errors, etc), 2 to indicate a corrupt or
       invalid input file, 3 for an internal consistency error (eg, bug) which
       caused lzip to panic.
