Text compression tool
Pycompressor is a tool for compressing text files into smaller ones, as well as extracting compressed files back into the original content.
It can be used as a program or imported as a package module, and use the functions defined on it.
For example, in order to compress one file:
$ pycompress -c -d /tmp/compressed.zf /usr/share/dict/words
The original file, in this example has a size of ~4.8M, and the tool left the resulting file at /tmp/compressed.zf, with a size of ~2.7M.
In order to extract it:
$ pycompress -x -d /tmp/original /tmp/compressed.zf
You can specify the name of the resulting file with the -d flag. If you don’t indicate a name for the resulting file, the default will be <original-file>.comp.
For the full options, run:
$ pycompress -h
pip install trenzalore
Will install the package and leave an application named pycompress for using the command line utility.
