From the developer:
bzip2 is a freely available, patent free, high-quality data compressor. It typically compresses files to within 10% to 15% of the best available techniques (the PPM family of statistical compressors), whilst being around twice as fast at compression and six times faster at decompression.
The code is organised as a library with a programming interface. The bzip2 program itself is a client of the library.
You may want to check out more software, such as GnuWin32: util-linux-ng-2.14.1, GnuWin32: GetText or GnuWin32: LibIconv, which might be similar to GnuWin32: Bzip2.
