pigz 2.1.6 (17 Jan 2010) by Mark Adler pigz, which stands for Parallel Implementation of GZip, is a fully functional replacement for gzip that exploits multiple processors and multiple cores to the hilt when compressing data. pigz was written by Mark Adler, and uses the zlib and pthread libraries. This version of pigz is written to be portable across Unix-style operating systems that provide the zlib and pthread libraries. Type "make" in this directory to build the "pigz" executable. You can then install the executable wherever you like in your path (e.g. /usr/local/bin/). Type "pigz" to see the command help and all of the command options. The latest version of pigz can be found at http://zlib.net/pigz/ . You need zlib version 1.2.3 or later to compile pigz. You can find the latest version of zlib at http://zlib.net/ .
