produced by plzip are fully compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer. Plzip

Lzip is a lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, with
very safe integrity checking and a user interface similar to the one

compresses better than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software
distribution and data archiving.
