pigz - compress or expand files
pigz [options] files...
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.
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.
