Jump to: navigation, search

xz is a compression tool that uses its own .xz format, and also the legacy .lzma format. The program is the target of links by other names and uses the name to adjust its operation:

  • unxz is the same as xz --decompress
  • xzcat is the same as xz --decompress --stdout
  • lzma is the same as xz --format=lzma
  • unlzma is the same as xz --format=zlma --decompress
  • lzcat is the same as xz --format-lzma --decompress --stdout
