Chapter 22. Third-Party Utilities > PKWare's PKZIP and PKUNZIP

PKWare's PKZIP and PKUNZIP

PKZIP and PKUNZIP are programs that can create and read special archive files. These archive files are called Zip files, and they invariably end with the .ZIP file extension. Zip files are special archive files that contain compressed copies of one or more normal files. Because of the compression that takes place for Zip files, Zip files are usually many times smaller than the original files themselves. The PKZIP program creates Zip files, whereas the PKUNZIP program reads files from within a Zip file and places copies on your disk. Two other programs included as part of the shareware version of PKZIP are described in Table 22.1.
