--- About the client ---

This client lets XAD view and extract bzip (.bz) files, but _NOT_ bzip2
(.bz2) files. bzip can only compress a single file, and cannot even
remember what filename, date or uncompressed size the compressed file had.
However, it compresses much better than gzip, which is what it intended to
replace. You are most likely to find bzip used to compress tar files
(.tar.bz or .tbz)

bzip is mostly the work of Julian Seward, and is an implementation of the
Burrows-Wheeler block sorting compression algorithim, using MTF and
arithmetic coding as other stages in compression.
