Pycompressor is a tool for compressing text files into smaller ones, as well as extracting compressed files back into the original content.

For example, in order to compress one file:

$ pycompress -c /usr/share/dict/words -d /tmp/compressed.zf

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 /tmp/compressed.zf -d /tmp/original

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
