Bzip2 compresses files using the Burrows-Wheeler block sorting text
compression algorithm, and Huffman coding. Compression is generally
considerably better than that achieved by more conventional LZ77/LZ78-
based compressors, and approaches the performance of the PPM family of
statistical compressors.
