    lz4 utility anybody ? to be used such as lzop, gzip, bzip2 and piping.


    can't see anywhere on google any utility such as gzip lzop bzip2 or similar.
    I'm baffled, it's so tremendously better in speed than all... and I can't find it as apt-cache search or anywhere...
    what am I missing ?
    nobody started a new project to pipe in and out to lz4 ???
    for instance dd if=/dev/sdb bs=512M | lz4 > image.lz4

    please help !!!?

    no I'm not looking for anything like 7zip setting the compression method, I'm looking for a PURE lz4 executable... linux style...

    I'm almost ready to write it myself if nobody did already.

    that ia source code not an executable

    That is the official site. As I wrote I'm looking for an executable not the source code. I am looking for something I can pipe in and out to at a terminal. Perhaps officially downloading it from some apt-get source

    There are at least 3 executable linked from this page.
    One for Windows, and 2 for Linux.

    Apt-get install doesn't work as well as apt-search can't find it. It is listed as Ubuntu available but I can't see it or install it. Is it too new and not deemed official or stable yet? Is it on some other repository?

    After poking around a bit, the page that I linked looks like the most likely source.
    And if it's not yet in the official repos, then installing from source would be the next best bet.
