Original Lempel-Ziv compress/uncompress programs
This package provides the original programs that are the de facto standard, in
much of the UNIX community, for compressing and uncompressing files. The
programs implement a fast, simple LZW file compression algorithm. The LZW
algorithm does not have as high a rate of compression as some other
algorithms, but LZW implementations such as this one often compress files
faster than other, similar programs such as gzip.
.
For Debian, the standard uncompress program is installed as uncompress.real.

This package contains a copyright notice from one of the original authors in
the file /usr/share/doc/ncompress/README.Debian.
