XZ Utils data compression

XZ Utils create 30% smaller output than gzip compression and 15% smaller output than bzip2 compression.

Verify installed version by using the command-line interface:
xz --version 227KB software package - DISCLAIMER {includes DEV and MAN files}

Dependencies: tar

To un-pack (extract) .tar.xz or .txz files, enter into the command-line interface (upper-case J option, not lower-case j option):
tar xfJv [file...]

To decompress (extract) a file or directory:
xz -d [file...] [dir...]

To compress a file or dir with xz compression:
xz [file...] [dir...]

To create an archive of a directory with xz compression:
tar cfJv file.tar.xz [dir...]
