this mail comes as a follow up to the thread posted in last December
about p7zip support in tar and more especially to this post:


I am the Debian maintainer of p7zip and LZMA and I have
prepared a new LZMA package for Debian including the Tukaani
(<http://tukaani.org/lzma/>) lzma-utils. It is available at
<http://adn.diwi.org/debian/lzma/4.43+utils.1-1/> as source and binary
and provides a gzip-like command-line interface to LZMA.

LZMA with lzma-utils *do* support streaming. And the LZMA package in
Debian will actually support it as soon as I upload it.


% echo foo | lzma
lzma: compressed data not written to a terminal. Use -f to force compression.

% echo foo | lzma -f

% echo foo | lzma -f | lzma -d

Is there something else needed to have LZMA supported in tar?

A patch for tar is available at
<http://adn.diwi.org/debian/lzma/4.43+utils.1-1/tar_lzma.diff> and
suggests the use of Y as a switch. But if you have another swith in
mind, just use it instead.

Thanks for considering,
Mohammed Adnène Trojette
