Description: About StuffIt Lite
*Fast Stuffing and UnStuffing
StuffIt Lite 3.6 is accelerated for Power Macintosh. Expansion of files on many
platforms is accelerated. StuffIt Lite compresses files an average of 60%,
creating a document called an archive. Archives save disk space, speed modem
and network file transfers, and make backups easier. StuffIt is the international
standard of file compression and archiving on all major online services
(including America Online and CompuServe) and thousands of bulletin board systems.
*Drag and Drop Support
StuffIt Lite 3.6 has drag and drop support making compression and expansion easy
to perform. To expand a file in a StuffIt archive, the user simply drags the
file onto the desktop. A file can be Stuffed by dragging it onto an archive or
into an open archive window. (This drag and drop functionality requires System
7.1.1 or higher.)
A suite of Apple events for registered copies of StuffIt Lite allow the program
to be automated using Apple's scripting technology. StuffIt Lite is also fully
recordable; just like a tape recorder, a user can perform a series of actions
and the script will be automatically written.
StuffIt Lite 3.6 features other capabilities found in previous versions, including
the ability to password protect archives, to create self-extracting archives and
to segment archives for fitting large files across multiple floppy disks. StuffIt
Lite 3.6 comes complete with an online guide.
