Description

File archive compressed with Bzip, a file compression tool included with some Unix systems; combines Run-Length Encoding (RLE) with the Burrows-Wheeler compression algorithm; slower than .GZIP compression, but compresses files more.

Important: Bzip has been replaced by the newer Bzip2 compression algorithm. Bzip2 files typically have a .BZ2 or .BZIP2 file extension.
