Lzip 1.18

Lzip is a lossless data compressor with a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2. Lzip is about as fast as gzip, compresses most files more than bzip2, and is better than both from a data recovery perspective. The lzip file format is designed for data sharing and long-term archiving, taking into account both data integrity and decoder availability.
