Hi Peter,

See also:

    * Creates ZIP-compatible file archives on C64, C128, VIC20, C16, or
    * *Also creates and compresses D64/D71/D81 disk images*
    * Uses Deflate store or LZ77 compression with fixed huffman trees
    * Quite fast compression (file I/O takes the most time)
    * Select the files to compress/store from a directory listing
    * Uses C128 burst read if possible
    * Automatically uses the C64 burst modification if available
    * Works with REU/RAMDOS, IDE64, CMD Ramlink/Hard Disk
    * Uses 2MHz in C128's 40- and 80-column and C64 mode when possible
    * Works with SuperCPU
    * Supports IDE64 raw directory, and sector read and write for
      increased speed

But I have not run it in perhaps 10 years, so it may have been 
bit-rotted :-)
