lziprecover: recovers data from damaged lzip files
NAMElziprecover - recovers data from damaged lzip files
SYNOPSISlziprecover [,options/] [,files/]
DESCRIPTIONLziprecover - Data recovery tool and decompressor for the lzip format.
Lziprecover can repair perfectly most files with small errors (up to one single-byte error per member), without the need of any extra redundance at all. Losing an entire archive just because of a corrupt byte near the beginning is a thing of the past.
Lziprecover can also produce a correct file by merging the good parts of two or more damaged copies, extract data from damaged files, decompress files and test integrity of files.

If no file names are given, or if a file is '-', lziprecover decompresses from standard input to standard output. Numbers may be followed by a multiplier: k = kB = 10^3 = 1000, Ki = KiB = 2^10 = 1024, M = 10^6, Mi = 2^20, G = 10^9, Gi = 2^30, etc...
Exit status: 0 for a normal exit, 1 for environmental problems (file not found, invalid flags, I/O errors, etc), 2 to indicate a corrupt or invalid input file, 3 for an internal consistency error (eg, bug) which caused lziprecover to panic.
