Pbzip2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses pthreads and achieves near-linear speedup on SMP machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 v1.0.2 (ie: anything compressed with pbzip2 can be decompressed with bzip2).

Since bzip2 is a slow nature, this is a must have in multicore and multiprocessor environments. drop in repacement for bzip2: alias bzip2='pbzip2'
