Looks useful. However, some suggestions:

- Don't call the first value "UPX version". Yes, it's the header data called "version", but it doesn't contain the version of the UPX program that compressed the file. I would rather call it the UPX file format version.

- UPX lists a compressed size of 148 byte more than UPXINFO. I suppose that's the size of the header and decompression stub. (My binary is compressed as DOS .COM...) Although I agree the compressed size of the real program is also useful, UPXINFO should additionally list the stub/header size.
