Very nice Carter.

It reads .xz files perfectly now, thank you for adding that feature.

There are a few issues though. When compiling then clients I get a lot 
of errors like: ./racurses.h:135:56: error: unknown type name ‘WINDOW’ 
and because of that ratop won't compile.

I didn't have ncurses-dev installed, and I also missed libreadline-dev. 
After installing those the error above is gone, but ratop won't compile. 
I'm getting this error now:
