lrzsz is a unix communication package providing the XMODEM, YMODEM ZMODEM file transfer protocols.
lrzsz is a heavily rehacked version of the last public domain release of Omen Technologies rzsz package.
Here are some key features of "lrzsz":
very portable, automagically configured with GNU autoconf.
up to 8KB block sizes (ZMODEM8K).
internationalized (using GNU gettext). German translation of the programs output exists.
far more secure than the original sources.
high performance. say `make vcheck-z' and have a look at the BPS rate - i recently saw 1.4 MB per second transfering a large file through pipes (on a I586/133 system. Beat that!).
good blocksize calculation (tries to compute an optimal blocksize based on the number of errors occured).
It's free software.
What's New in This Release:
works on BeOS and stone-aged SCO (sco-3.2v4.2)
pubdir-"feature" works again.
"make rpm" creates a rpm file.
"optimal blklen calculation" was too aggressive, it now does nothing if the user demands fixed blklens.
various smaller and medium bug fixes.
a more or less important security bug is fixed (stupid use of /tmp in a piece of code which is rarely used).
lrz uses umask to make files unreadable which receiving them.
"sh systype | mail firstname.lastname@example.org" sends a success report with a description of the system type.
--enable-syslog is now default
