lzmainfo - show information stored in the .lzma file header
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
lzmainfo [ --help ] [ --version ] [ file ]...
3. 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
R - , 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 dictionary size.
lzmainfo is included in XZ Utils primarily for backward compatibility with LZMA Utils.
4. EXIT STATUS ▲
All is good.
An error occurred.
5. BUGS ▲
MB while the correct suffix would be
MiB (2^20 bytes). This is to keep the output compatible with LZMA Utils.
