How do i do this kind of file compression and what is it called?
Ok, lately I've been downloading huge files.. How there compressed is quite interesting and I really want to learn how to do it.
Let me explain how it is.
I think its a .rar file but ok anywys thats what program i use to decompress files.
Lets pretend a file is called linux.rar
When i double click it, the winrar window pops up of course and instead of it having the actualy linux files, You would see files like this.
linux.001 (size is 20,000,000b)
linux.002 (size is 20,000,000b)
linux.003 (size is 20,000,000b)
linux.004 (size is 20,000,000b)
linux.005 (size is 20,000,000b)
linux.006 (size is 20,000,000b)
Anyways what i do is I first extract all these files to a folder. After i extract them to a folder, I run the first file (linux.001).
Now what happens is a winrar window pops up and it has linux.iso" and it is not 20,000,000 bytes, its the real size of the iso.
I was wondeiring what kind of compression is this? and how would i go about doing it?
