NAME

       anycompress - use any CompLearn module data compressor to compress a file

SYNOPSIS

       anycompress [-L] [ -c compressor ] [ infile ] [ outfile ]

DESCRIPTION

       anycompress  is  a  simple and powerful generic compression tool.  By default, it reads an
       input file from standard input.  If a command argument is given it will use that as  input
       instead.  It produces an output file (or writes to stdout if reading from stdin) by adding
       an extension to the end of the input filename.  The user may optionally specify an  output
       filename  instead.   The  compressor  to  use may be specified using the complearn.conf(5)
       configuration file or the -c command line option as described below.

       OPTIONS

       -c, --compressor=compressor
              use and set compressor to use

       -L, --list
              list available builtin  compressors  as  well  as  available  compression  modules.
              Modules are loaded from the modules subdirectory of /usr/lib/complearn.  -h, --help
              show help options and exit

EXAMPLES

       To gzip a text file to produce a file called readme.txt.gz:

       anycompress -c gzip readme.txt

       To compute the SHA2 (SHA256) checksum of a file (assuming you have the
              complearn cryptographic compression  modules  installed):  anycompress  -c  sha2  <
              /bin/ls To do the same with MD5: anycompress -c md5 < /bin/ls

       /usr/lib/complearn/modules

        standard module automatic loading area.  Any shared object compressor
              modules found here will be loaded on startup.

ENVIRONMENT

       COMPLEARNMODPATH
               If this environment variable is set, CompLearn will search the given directory and
              load any CompLearn compression modules  it  finds  there  (such  as  the  libart.so
              example included with the CompLearn source distribution) none

DIAGNOSTICS

       none
