Update of /cvsroot/src/external/zlib/pigz/dist
In directory ivanova.netbsd.org:/tmp/cvs-serv10092
(once again in the right place)
initial import of pigz 2.1.6 sources.
pigz, which stands for parallel implementation of gzip, is a fully functional
replacement for gzip that exploits multiple processors and multiple cores to the
hilt when compressing data. pigz was written by Mark Adler, and uses the zlib
and pthread libraries.
How is it pronounced?
I'm glad you asked. It is pronounced "pig-zee". It is not pronounced like the
plural of pig.
once i am done adding bz2 support to pigz, i plan to obsolete my usr.bin/gzip.
Vendor Tag: adler
