archivers/szip - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Extended-Rice lossless compression

SZIP implements an extended Rice adaptive lossless compression algorithm
for sample data.  The primary algorithm was developed by R. F. Rice at
Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

SZIP is not redistributable.  Consider using archivers/libaec, a BSD-licensed
drop-in replacement, instead.
