  Description     : lha archive decompressor

Lhasa is a library for parsing LHA (.lzh) archives and a free replacement
for the Unix LHA tool.

Currently it is only possible to read from (ie. decompress) archives;
generating (compressing) LHA archives may be an enhancement for future
versions. The aim is to be compatible with as many different variants
of the LHA file format as possible, including LArc (.lzs) and
PMarc (.pma). A suite of archives generated from different tools is
included for regression testing.

The command line tool aims to be interface-compatible with the non-free
Unix LHA tool (command line syntax and output), for backwards compatibility
with tools that expect particular output.

Lhasa is licensed under the ISC license, which is a simplified version of
the MIT/X11 license that is functionally identical.

It's my intention to initially package the lhasa binary and later add
the library package.
