p7zip is the Unix command-line port of 7-Zip, a file archiver that handles the 7z format which features very high compression ratios. p7zip provides: - /usr/bin/7zr a standalone minimal version of the 7-zip tool that only handles 7z, LZMA and XZ archives. 7z compression is 30-50% better than ZIP compression. - /usr/bin/p7zip a gzip-like wrapper around 7zr. p7zip can be used with popular compression interfaces (such as File Roller or Nautilus). Another package, p7zip-full, provides 7z and 7za which support more compression formats.
