bzip2: High-quality data compressor¶
bzip2 is a freely available, patent free, high-quality data compressor.
It typically compresses files to within 10% to 15% of the best available techniques (the PPM family of statistical compressors), whilst being around twice as fast at compression and six times faster at decompression.
Special Update/Build Instructions¶
This package must not be bzip2 compressed, so create it using
tar c bzip2-1.0.6 | gzip --best >bzip2-1.0.6.spkg
The build system has been autotoolized based on a patch by the Suse folk at http://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/suse/people/sbrabec/bzip2/for_downstream/bzip2-1.0.6-autoconfiscated.patch
See patches/autotools and spkg-src for details.
Equivalent System Packages¶
$ conda install bzip2-devel
$ apt-cyg install bzip2-devel
$ sudo apt-get install bzip2-devel
$ sudo yum install bzip2-devel
$ sudo zypper install bzip2-devel
$ sudo slackpkg install bzip2-devel
$ sudo xbps-install bzip2-devel
If the system package is installed, ./configure will check whether it can be used.
