As it has been said before, Alan did a great job explaining the PC side.
He apparently does not know that Stuffit Expander (originally ment for
mac) is available to run on WIN 95. It will just decompress just about
anything out there that is compressed, or encoded. I prefer to use it
because it is just one program I have to use compaired to a mutiple
number of programs. To find it, do a websearch for "Stuffit Expander"
and you should find it easily. The only problem is that it comes to you
encoded in Mac Binary, UUEncoded, or Zip file. You will need another
program to uncompress/encode it, but they are also easy to find.
YIS, and Zipping,
