lzmainfo(1) [suse man page]

LZMAINFO(1)							     XZ Utils							       LZMAINFO(1)

NAME
lzmainfo - show infomation 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 dictio- nary 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. SEE ALSO

XZLESS(1)							     XZ Utils								 XZLESS(1)

NAME
xzless, lzless - view xz or lzma compressed (text) files SYNOPSIS
xzless [file...] lzless [file...] DESCRIPTION
xzless is a filter that displays pagefulls of uncompressed text from compressed file(s) to a terminal. It works on files compressed with xz(1) or lzma(1). If no files are given, xzless reads from standard input. xzless uses less(1) as its only pager. Unlike xzmore, the choice of pagers is not alterable by an environment variable. Commands are based on both more(1) and vi(1), and allow back and forth movement and searching. See the less(1) manual for more information. The command named lzless is provided for backward compatibility with LZMA Utils. ENVIRONMENT
LESSMETACHARS A list of characters special to the shell. Set by xzless unless it is already set in the environment. LESSOPEN Set to a command line to invoke the xz(1) decompressor for preprocessing the input files to less(1). SEE ALSO
less(1), xz(1), xzmore(1), zless(1) Tukaani 2009-07-05 XZLESS(1)
