Name: BZList

Context: Client

Supported By: DC++ 0.17 through 0.401


This signals support for a bzip2 compressed file list, instead of the huffman encoded list that NMDC pioneered. This compressed file list is available for download under the name MyList.bz2, instead of MyList.DcLst.


$Get MyList.bz2$1|


  • Better compression than huffman, by 2-3 times
  • Smaller file lists can be transferred more easily
  • BZip2 is an established compression algorithm

Note: BZList was the first protocol extension signalled by $Supports
