Back in the early-mid 1990s there was an archiver written which not only
beat all other archivers hands down re compression but was also very fast. I
was using it for my data. But at that time zip etc "ruled" the world and
this archiver was kinda by-passed.....
And do you think I can remember its name? :-(

Back in the day, we had ARC, ARJ, LHA, ZIP and a couple others I don't
remember. ARJ was my preference. It usually beat out ZIP for file
size. Haven't used it in 15 years probably.......
