    paqzip

    here is an very interesting compression program with sources,
    which combines the power of the PAQ8 - compression - algorithm
    with the most popular archive file format (zip),
    but it is only a testversion from march 2008

    The best ratio compressor(paq8, using the lpaq8 version)
    + the most popular archive file format(zip).

    Integration of lpaq8 + info-zip

    zip is quick at deleting/adding/extracting specific files to the archive, you don't have to uncompress the whole archive to delete/add/extract one file. Because of these flexible features the compression ratio isn't as good as tar+lpaq,lpq,etc. especially when you have lots of smaller files in the archive.

    By default zip is set to lpaq,
    to use normal zip again use the "-Zdeflate" option

    @Matt Mahoney:
    you are now developing the zpaq - program
    have you had a look at this interesting program?

    This program has already archiv-features
    like compressing all files within a dir incl. subdirectories

    best regards
