original Lempel-Ziv compress/uncompress programs
This package provides the original compress and uncompress programs that used
to be the de facto UNIX standard for compressing and uncompressing files.
These programs implement a fast, simple Lempel-Ziv (LZW) file compression
algorithm.
.
For Debian, the standard uncompress program is installed as uncompress.real,
to avoid conflicting with other packages.
.
This package also contains a copyright notice and a brief discussion of the
LZW patent history (written by one of the original authors) in the file
/usr/share/doc/ncompress/README.Debian.
