Positions "for" or "against" pbzip2...

Post#1 by n0ctilucient » 24 Feb 2019, 14:38

I'm very interested in using "pbzip2" as a drop-in bzip alternative.
Any thoughts regarding it's merits (or lack thereof) in a multi-core system?

but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

If anyone has experience with these alternatives I'd be very interested in learning if there is really any major performance gain over bzip.
