NAME

       pxz - Parallel LZMA compressor compatible with XZ.

SYNOPSIS

       pxz [options]... [file]...

DESCRIPTION

       pxz  is  a  compression  utility  that  takes  advantage  of running XZ
       compression simultaneously on different  parts  of  an  input  file  on
       multiple cores and processors. This significantly speeds up compression
       time.

OPTIONS

       -v     Be verbose.

       -h, --help
              Display help.

       -f, --force
              Force operation.

       -c, --stdout
              Write results to standard output.

       -k, --keep
              Keep (don't delete) input files

       -T, --threads
              Maximal number of threads to run simultaneously.

       -D, --context-size
              Context  size  per  one  thread  specified  as  a  multiple   of
              dictionary size for active compression level.

       -V, --version
              Display version of PXZ.

EXAMPLES

       pxz file1 file2
              Compress  file1 and file2 to file1.xz and file2.xz using default
              settings.

       pxz -T4 file1
              Compress  file1  with  default  compression  and  maximum  of  4
              threads.

       pxz -k -9 file1
              Use maximal compression and keep the original file1, use default
              number of threads.

       pxz -f -T4 file1
              Compress file with default compression and with 4 threads.

       pxz -kvf -3 -T8 file1
              Use -3 compression, keep the original file, use  8  threads  and
              show progress.

       tar Oc dir1 | pxz -D 12 -cv - > dir1.tar.xz
              Move  dir1  into  tar,  then  compress it with the context of 12
              sizes of dictionary per thread, show progress and  write  result
              to dir1.tar.xz.
