The Lempel-Ziv Markov-chain Algorithm is a compression method based on
the famous LZ77 algorithm, and was first introduced by 7-Zip for use in
7z archives.
Its main characteristics are a very high compression ratio, with high RAM
usage, and fast decompression, with low RAM usage. These properties make
it well suited to embedded uses, such as for ROM (firmware) compression.
This package contains the headers and libraries of lzma. It is
experimental and will be replaced by the library as soon as it is
