SYNOPSISanycompress [-L] [ -c compressor ] [ infile ] [ outfile ]
anycompress is a simple and powerful generic compression tool. By default, it reads an input file from standard input. If a command argument is given it will use that as input instead. It produces an output file (or writes to stdout if reading from stdin) by adding an extension to the end of the input filename. The user may optionally specify an output filename instead. The compressor to use may be specified using the complearn.conf(5) configuration file or the -c command line option as described below.
- -c, --compressor=compressor
- use and set compressor to use
- -L, --list
- list available builtin compressors as well as available compression modules. Modules are loaded from the modules subdirectory of /usr/lib/complearn. -h, --help show help options and exit
- To gzip a text file to produce a file called readme.txt.gz:
- anycompress -c gzip readme.txt
- To compute the SHA2 (SHA256) checksum of a file (assuming you have the
- complearn cryptographic compression modules installed): anycompress -c sha2 < /bin/ls To do the same with MD5: anycompress -c md5 < /bin/ls
