This is an archiver. It compresses several files into a single
It is entirely command-line driven. Compression and uncompression are combined into this
single executable program. It has a speed-tightness-memory trade off that favors tightness
and tries to make full use of the resources (memory) on the platform it is running on.
Contains "experimental" methods as a consequence of the exploration of
hi-performance algorithms. "experimental" does not indicate instability - but
rather that the method may not be supported backwards in every single future version.
The command-line interface is similar to that of ZOO
and HA. But the option characters are
more related to ARJ and LHA. The interface has little in common with PKZip. With a little
knowledge of common archivers, it should be possible to skip parts of this
