seems particularly useful for System 6 users.

It would be, if only it lived up to it's promise (of expanding StuffIt ".sit"). It appears to be incapable of expanding StuffIt vers. 2x and vers. 5.5.x ".sit" files in both Systems 6 and 7.

Expanding .hqx was OK. I didn't test it on .zip and .bin, but it's limited .sit support was the clincher for me.

I did have hopes for this as a StuffIt Expander alternative in SSW 6/7 on Mini vMac (which doesn't like StuffIt Expander 5.5x too much either) Sad
