A wrapper for lrzip to simplify compression of directories. See also: tar, lrzuntar, lrunzip.

  • Archive a directory with tar, then compress:

lrztar {{path/to/directory}}

  • Same as above, with ZPAQ - extreme compression, but very slow:

lrztar -z {{path/to/directory}}

  • Specify the output file:

lrztar -o {{path/to/file}} {{path/to/directory}}

  • Override the number of processor threads to use:

lrztar -p {{8}} {{path/to/directory}}

  • Force overwriting of existing files:

lrztar -f {{path/to/directory}}
