WinImp is now freeware. We thank those users who have
supported it by registering their copy.
WinImp is a new file archiver which not
only recognises common archive formats, but also
introduces a new, high performance archive format.
WinImp's features include:
Extract files from ZIP, ARJ, RAR
and TAR archives, decompress GZIP, Unix Compress
and BZIP2 files, and decode UUencoded, XXencoded
and MIME files.
Create ZIP archives, and IMP
archives with high compression.
Display the folders within
archives in a tree view, similar to Windows
Rename files and folders within
ZIP and IMP archives.
Drag-and-drop files and folders
from Windows Explorer into ZIP and IMP archive
Extract files or folders from
archives by dragging and dropping into Windows
Create self-extracting IMP
archives for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95.
IMP archives have three advanced features:
- Two new high-performance compression algorithms:
a general-purpose algorithm for normal use, and a
special text compression algorithm for high
compression of text documents.
- Most archivers compress files individually, but
WinImp can compress multiple files together as a
unit for higher compression. Unlike some
archivers which compress the entire archive as
one unit, WinImp can use several units for large
archives, so you don't have to extract the entire
archive to get the last file.
- Complete repair of slightly damaged archives
using optional error-recovery data added to the
WinImp is freeware. It takes less than a minute to download at 56kpbs and uses less
than 1 megabyte of hard disk space.
