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 dictionary 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.
