zip-2.3: description + notes

zip is a compression and file packaging/archive utility. Although highly compatible both with PKWARE's PKZIP and PKUNZIP utilities for MS-DOS and with Info-ZIP's own UnZip, our primary objectives have been portability and other-than-MSDOS functionality. Features not found in the PKWARE version include:

  • creating zipfiles in a pipe or on a device
  • VMS and OS/2 extended file attributes
  • conversion between Unix, MS-DOS and Macintosh text file formats
  • the ability to run on most of your favorite operating systems.

To install this package, go to the SGI Freeware site.
