About the Alysis Resource Compressor™
The Alysis Resource Compressor™
The Alysis Resource Compressor makes System 7 specific applications, INITs, control-panels, and system extensions smaller by applying data compression to the individual resources inside the files. Since the resources are only decompressed when they are accessed, the applications compressed by the Alysis Resource Compressor in many cases launch faster than the uncompressed originals. Because the decompression is done by Apple's system software, the applications do not require supporting software to launch and exhibit the same high level of compatibility with other software as Apple's own compressed applications: they open properly with ResEdit, operate correctly with the Finder's 'Get Info' function and can be properly scanned with anti-virus software.
Software publishers who wish to compress
their applications, INITs, control panels, system extensions and resource-based
files can use the Alysis Resource Compressor to shrink their software resources
into the exact same format as those compressed by Apple. The Alysis Resource
Compressor can compress any application or extension at any stage of the
software development process. Since it operates on resources,
the Alysis Resource Compressor does not require the addition of any new
code or even recompilation of existing code. Developers can simply
drag and drop their products, in shipping form, onto the Alysis Resource
Compressor icon and in minutes have smaller versions of their software.
