Notes about Debian 7-Zip packages.
----------------------------------

The Debian 7-Zip suite consists of the three following packages:

1. p7zip package, which is the smallest one and includes:

    - 7zr command, which provides support for compressing and
      decompressing archives in 7-Zip, LZMA and XZ formats only.

      *Note*: the 7zr command cannot be used neither on archives
      protected by passwords, nor on archives that use the PPMD
      compression method. However both are supported by 7za and 7z
      commands from the p7zip-full package.

    - p7zip script which is a gzip-like wrapper on 7zr or 7za
      commands.

2. p7zip-full package that depends on the above p7zip package
   and consists of:

    - 7za command which is standalone command line version of 7-Zip.
      It supports more archive formats than 7zr.

    - 7z command which is the full featured command line version of
      7-Zip. 7z uses other modules from 7-Zip package, so it handles
      more archive formats, but might be a bit slower than 7za.
      Modules are installed in /usr/lib/p7zip.

    - Small additional documentation in the HTML format.

3. Non-free p7zip-rar package that contains non-free (due to the terms
   of the UnRAR license) Rar.so module for the 7z command.

Note concerning directory exclusion.
------------------------------------

 - Directory exclusion only works when an exclude list file is provided
   and if directories to exclude are listed as relative paths of the
   location 7z or 7za is run from.

 - Using absolute directories *won't* work, as noted in #296665.
