NAME

hunzip - compress and encrypt dictionary files  

SYNOPSIS

hzip [-h] [-P password] [file(s)]  

DESCRIPTION

hunzip is a small utility for text file compression and encryption, especially for sorted dictionaries. "hunspell filename" creates the compressed file "filename.hz" without removing the original file.

The compression algorithm uses 16-bit Huffman encoding and line-oriented prefix-suffix compression. It has good compression ratio for huge sorted word lists.
