Of interest to anyone who uses Bulletin Boards or
transfers material over to the ST or other computers is this collection
of ARC utilities and file compressors. The disk contains versions of the
famous ARC utility found on IBM machines and the ST which allows files
to be combined and compressed for transmission or to keep related files
together. ARCing files saves transmission time and costs and as this ARC
is fully compatible with others you can port files over to an ST and
then unARc them with the equivalent ARC program on that machine. SCRUNCH
is the other compression utility which will take a whole disk and
compress It into one file that can be transmitted or just kept as a back
up for safety. Both programs are fully documented and the disk is full.
Interestingly, these 8-bit programs have been written in C for
additional speed, but they will run straight from the disk.
