Compress .exe files to save space.

Back in 1991 I used a command line program called PKLITE to compress executable files and sometimes to protect code (at least at first). Memory and disk space was at a premium back then and programs were required to be small and fast.

PKLITE was one way to achieve that!

Unfortunately, I do not have any screenshots currently of the file packing from DOS. There are plenty that show a file UNpacking dialog though via Google Image Search.

 

You can get it here PKLITE!

 

And documentation is on SCRIBD
