Notes:

  1. ^ Application is only for decompression.
  2. ^ GNU tar calls the external programs gzip and bzip2 to perform compression; these external programs usually come with systems that contain GNU tar.
  3. ^ Allows adding a variable amount of redundancy for much better error recovery. See also RAR (file format).
  4. ^ Extracting/adding file and/or directory names into archive in either UTF-7, UTF-8 or UTF-16/UCS-2 encoding to support single file/directory name which contains characters from different languages. More recent versions of the zip file format have support for Unicode filenames.
  5. ^ In WinRAR 3.60, when opening 7-Zip archives which contains Unicode file/directory names, they will not be displayed correctly. There will be no problem extracting them, however.
  6. ^ Does support Unicode names, but not under the default (initial) option settings: the user must tick "Use OEM conversion for filenames" under "General" on the "Miscellaneous" tab in the Configuration dialog to enable Unicode name support. Full support for Unicode files names by default is supported only for 7-Zip and RAR archive formats.
  7. ^ Commandline batch compression is available only for ZIP and ALZ formats.
  8. ^ UTF-8 support was completed in release 2.5. On Unix systems the support is full, while on Windows systems, due to limitation of the Windows shell environment, double-character encoded characters cannot currently be displayed in filenames of archived objects, and those chars are replaced by a corrupted character. Optionally, extended characters can be set to be always replaced by a 'corrupted' "?" character to avoid possible issues between archive's and system's character encodings.[10]
  9. ^ Commandline batch compression and expansion requires free add-on software downloaded from the WinZip website.[2]
  10. ^ Peazip supports file encryption and file name encryption, although only in certain types of archives, including its own Pea format, 7-zip, zip and Arc.
  11. ^ Many shells have built-in zip file support. Windows Explorer has "Send To"->"ZIP-compressed folder".
  12. ^ Since version 3.0 (2008).

Notes:

  1. ^ Used to, but no longer does, due to technical and legal issues.
  2. ^ GNU tar calls external programs [3] (like compress, gzip or bzip2 or any other programs working with abstract streams and supporting the "-d" option) to perform (de)compression, and allowing you to implement your own filters[4]. These external programs may be shipped with your Operating System.
  3. ^ GNU tar lets you implement your own filters [5], allowing you to use other compression programs (p7zip, ...) and filters (GPG, ...).
  4. ^ Starting from version 11.
  5. ^ Requires external program. More info
  6. ^ Archive Utility itself is unable to open ISO files, but Disk Utility, which also comes with Mac OS X, is able to mount them as virtual disks.
  7. ^ Requires external program.[6]
  8. ^ Only partial support for reading proprietary SITX format. [7]
  9. ^ FreeARC uses .arc as its filename extension, but this format is not the same as the traditional ARC file.
