Chapter 9. Mac OS Utilities > StuffIt Expander

StuffIt Expander

StuffIt Expander is a file compression utility that expands files compressed or encoded with StuffIt (.sit), Zip (.zip), BinHex (.hqx), Tar (.tar), and other schemes. Files distributed over the Internet are commonly compressed or encoded to bundle multiple files into one file and reduce download times.

Tips

  • Developed by Aladdin Systems, Inc., StuffIt is a standard compression scheme for Mac OS computers.

  • StuffIt Expander does not compress files; it only decompresses them. To compress files, you need a program such as StuffIt Deluxe, which is available on the Aladdin Web site, www.aladdinsys.com.
