Synopsis

NAME
       lzmainfo - show information stored in the .lzma file header

SYNOPSIS
       lzmainfo [--help] [--version] [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       lzmainfo  shows  information stored in the .lzma file header.  It reads
       the first 13 bytes from the specified file,  decodes  the  header,  and
       prints it to standard output in human readable format.  If no files are
       given or file is -, standard input is read.

       Usually the most interesting information is the uncompressed  size  and
       the  dictionary  size.  Uncompressed size can be shown only if the file
       is in the non-streamed .lzma format  variant.   The  amount  of  memory
       required  to decompress the file is a few dozen kilobytes plus the dic-
       tionary size.

       lzmainfo is included in XZ Utils primarily for  backward  compatibility
       with LZMA Utils.

EXIT STATUS
       0      All is good.

       1      An error occurred.

BUGS
       lzmainfo  uses  MB  while the correct suffix would be MiB (2^20 bytes).
       This is to keep the output compatible with LZMA Utils.
