Almost from its inception in 1987, StuffIt became the standard tool for file compression on the Mac. By combining resource fork handling with compression, Raymond Lau gave Mac users a one-stop solution for archiving their files. Although StuffIt left its shareware roots after version 1.5.1, some form of StuffIt Expander has always been free and freely available.
Available DL's from the top down:
Have removed virus from Stuffit 1.5.1 - it was in the Readme app (an executable doc) not in Stuffit itself.
Have also split the original download into separate components (as per IIGS_User's request) for easier access to the version you need.
