File Extension TLZ

.TLZ File

File extension: TLZ
File type: Compressed File


Notes about the TLZ file extension:



To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The TLZ file type is primarily associated with 'lzip' by Antonio Diaz Diaz.

Lzip is a lossless data compressor based on the LZMA (Lempel-Ziv-Markov chain-Algorithm) algorithm designed by Igor Pavlov.

The high compression of LZMA comes from combining two basic, well-proven compression ideas: sliding dictionaries (i.e. LZ77/78), and markov models (i.e., the thing used by every compression algorithm that uses a range encoder or similar order-0 entropy coder as its last stage) with segregation of contexts according to what the bits are used for.

.tar.lz and .tlz extensions are used when combined with the Tar program.
