Archive SE is a system that can archive (or compress) files in a variety of known formats (.tar.gz, .gz, and .zip). This allows users to keep large quantities of files in one place and to save space, which is especially useful if you are archiving source code, HTML files, photographs, sending items over the Internet or just for backup purposes.
The decompression engine can also process RAR files. The system is designed to allow easy use of TAR GZIP archives which is of particular use when backing-up. The system always appends files so that previous versions of files are not overwritten and lost, this is especially useful for source code. Version 1.1.5 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
