squashfs-tools 4.4 Tools to create and extract squashfs file systems

Squashfs is a highly compressed read-only file system for Linux. It uses zlib to compress files, inodes, and directories. All blocks are packed to minimize the data overhead, and block sizes of between 4K and 1M are supported. It is intended to be used for archival use, for live CDs, and for embedded systems where low overhead is needed. This package allows you to create and extract such file systems.
