anydecompress(1) use any CompLearn module data compressor to decompress a file


anydecompress [-L] [ infile ] [ outfile ]


anydecompress is a simple and powerful generic decompression 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 scanning through all available CompLearn compression modules to try to find an accepting decompressor. If it finds one, it uses it to decompress the input file. If it fails to find an acceptable decompressor available it prints an error and returns an exit code. The user may optionally specify an output filename instead.
