PKZIP 2.50 for DOS is an easy to use yet powerful .ZIP archive
manager designed and engineered by the originators of the .ZIP file format. PKZIP's command line interface allows you to quickly and
easily accomplish both simple and complex archiving tasks including compressing and uncompressing files, creating self-extracting .ZIP
files, and spanning .ZIP files across diskettes.
Full support of Windows 9x Long File Names (LFN'S). You are no longer limited to DOS 8.3 file names when running in a Windows 9x command line environment.
PKZIP 2.50 for DOS increases the file storage limitation from 5,000 to over 16,000 files stored in a single .ZIP archive. A great benefit to anyone doing backup and restore operations using PKZIP.
PKZIP 2.50 for DOS will use DOS Protected Mode Interface (DPMI) in Windows 95/98, OS/2 and other DPMI supported environments to run 32-bit code for better and faster compression performance.
PKZIP 2.50 offers full Y2K compliance.
PKZIP 2.50 for DOS uses the classic PKZIP 2.04g command line syntax, and can be used with existing batch files & scripts with no changes.
