hzip: compress and encrypt dictionary files

NAME

hunzip - compress and encrypt dictionary files

SYNOPSIS

hzip [-h] [-P password] [file(s)]

DESCRIPTION

hunzip is a small utility for text file compression and encryption, especially for sorted dictionaries. "hunspell filename" creates the compressed file "filename.hz" without removing the original file.

The compression algorithm uses 16-bit Huffman encoding and line-oriented prefix-suffix compression. It has good compression ratio for huge sorted word lists.

OPTIONS

-h
Display short help description.
-P
Encrypted compression by an arbitrary length password.
