lrzsz: free x/y/zmodem implementation

lrzsz is a unix communication package providing the XMODEM, YMODEM ZMODEM file transfer protocols. lrzsz is a heavily rehacked version of the last public domain release of Omen Technologies rzsz package, and is now free software and released under the GNU General Public Licence.

Features of lrzsz

  • very portable, automagically configured with GNU autoconf.
  • crash recovery.
  • up to 8KB block sizes (ZMODEM8K).
  • internationalized (using GNU gettext). German translation of the programs output exists.
  • far more secure than the original sources.
  • high performance. say `make vcheck-z' and have a look at the BPS rate - i recently saw 1.4 MB per second transfering a large file through pipes (on a I586/133 system. Beat that!).
  • good blocksize calculation (tries to compute an optimal blocksize based on the number of errors occured).
  • It's free software.
