Aladdin Systems, Inc.
of StuffIt, StuffIt Lite, StuffIt Deluxe, and StuffIt Space Saver. DropStuff
will compress to StuffIt format, self extracting archive, and encrypt
stuffed files. DropStuff comes with Expander Enhancer which allows StuffIt
Expander to expand the greatest variety of file types.
- Drop Text 1.5
- Drop Text is a program for drag-and-drop conversion of text files
between Mac, Unix and PC formats. Very, very handy for converting text
files downloaded from CCN for editing on your Mac. Program is freeware
with no registration fee. I highly recommend it f or any Mac user
connecting to the InterNet or any PC based BBS.

Doubler, and others.
- UULite 1.7
- UULite is a Mac program for UU encoding and decoding files. UU encoding
is a common Unix based format for transfer of graphics and applications accross
the net where file size and the use of all ascii characters could cause
problems. UULite can convert between unix text and mac text files. It can also UUencode
and UUdecode files for/from transfer on the net. It can also automatically
merge and decode UUencoded files that have been split, such as files/graphics
found in some of the newsgroups.Shareware fee is $37.00 US and payment can be made
with credit card by internet E-Mail.
- ZipIt 1.3.5
- ZipIt is a very capable Macintosh program for expanding/compressing in
the PC PKZip format. Very handy for compatibility with the many zipped
files available on PC based BBSes. Shareware registration fee is $10.00
US by mail or $12.00 by phone or On-Line on Compuserve. ZipIt will also
automatically unzip QWK mail files with the off line mail reader Freddie.

Version 1.3.5 uploaded 15 Jan 96, Scanned with Disinfectant 3.6, Self
Extracting Archive format.
- uuUndo 1.0
- uuUndo is a drag-and-drop program for un-encoding files that have been
uuEncoded. Examples of such are the graphics and files that one finds in
the bodies of newsgroup messages where they appear as a large block of
bizarre characters. I believe uuUndo is freeware with no registration fee
as I can find no information on registration. Another highly recommended
program for Mac users connected to the InterNet.
