GNU compression utilities

This package provides the standard GNU file compression utilities, which are also the default compression tools for Debian. They typically operate on files with names ending in '.gz', but can also decompress files ending in '.Z' created with 'compress'.

most used compression tool in *nix systems but doesnt profit from multicore/muliprocessor environments. consider to use pigz instead.
