Please tell me what a .LZW decompressor is.
I thought gunzip could decompress such thing which
was generated by "compress" command.
However my impression is that lha compresses using a combination of the LZSS
and Huffman encoding, which I believe is not LZW.
However, reading the source code gives me an impression that
they might be doing something similar to LZW, but I am no longer quite
sure of details.
