NAME

       pigz - compress or expand files

SYNOPSIS

       pigz [options] files...

DESCRIPTION

       pigz  is  an  almost compatible replacement for the gzip program providing a common set of
       command line arguments. The  special  feature  of  pigz  is  support  for  (de)compression
       execution  in  multiple  threads,  utilizing  more  available  CPU  power  on multicore or
       multiprocessor systems than the standard gzip implementation.

OPTIONS

       These program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options  starting  with
       two  dashes  (`-').  Most options are derived from the gzip program, see its documentation
       for details. There are also new  pigz  specific  options  for  advanced  usage  which  are
       displayed in program's help output.
