DIET compresses EXECUTABLES and DRIVERS so that from the user's
perspective they perform the same as if they were not compressed. That means you can
execute them directly, or load them from your CONFIG.SYS. We call this feature
selF-eXtracting, or SFX.
You can use DIET to compress DATA-type files, but they are NOT self-extracting. To use
DIETed DATA files, you must either decompress manually or load DIET as a TSR so that they
are decompressed automatically when your application program loads them.
