pbzip2 1.0.5 (2009-01-09)

Long Description:
pbzip2 for OS/2 The pbzip2 program is a parallel version of bzip2 for use on shared memory machines. It provides near-linear speedup when used on true multi-processor machines and 5-10% speedup on Hyperthreaded machines. The output is fully compatible with the regular bzip2 data so any files created with pbzip2 can be uncompressed by bzip2 and vice-versa. The default settings for pbzip2 will work well in most cases. The only switch you will likely need to use is -d to decompress files and -p to set the # of processors for pbzip2 to use if autodetect is not supported on your system, or you want to use a specific # of CPUs.
