DOS Compression & Conversion Software

PKWare's PKZip and PKUnzip utility. Creates, extracts and manipulates ZIP archived files (files ending with a .zip extension). Can create self-extracting archives. Shareware. You must have this program to use some of the other files in the PDA.
UU utils
A set of utilities for DOS to uuencode and uudecode files and multiple file sets. Also supports the newer XX encoding scheme.
Extracts and creates LHA archives.
GZIP for DOS (also GZip v1.2.4)
Extracts files compressed with UNIX GZIP. Uses a basic DOS command line interface with switches. Public domain.
Creates and extracts ARJ archives. Supports multiple volume spanning, different compression ratios, and self-extracting archives. Shareware.
Extracts .ARC archives. Does not create them. Presumably freeware.
MPack for DOS
Decodes MIME and Base64-encoded pictures downloaded from CCN and the Internet. Use PKUnZip to unpack.
UnStuffIt (for DOS)
Now there is an unstuffing program for DOS capable of unstuffing Mac text files (.sit) for use on a PC. Note: only text files can be used on a PC and converted; operating system-prevalent programs designed only for Mac will NOT run on a PC despite unstuffing it. Use ARCE to unpack.
Simple UnTar program for DOS.
