LZMAINFO(1)			   XZ Utils			   LZMAINFO(1)

NAME
       lzmainfo	- show information 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 dic-
       tionary 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.
