			Current Status of Unsit

You can get the latest version of unsit by anonymous FTP from sipi.usc.edu
( in ~pub/unsit.shar.  This is version 1.5f and the program
hasn't been changed since July 1990.  Unsit will handle the compression methods
that were used in the public domain versions of Stuffit since these were
documented in the manuals that came with the program.  However when Stuffit
became a commercial product (Stuffit Deluxe) they started using a different
file format which was never made public.  If anybody could find some
documentation on the newer file formats I could probably add support for them
to unsit but until that information surfaces there's not much I can do.  The 
bottom line is that unsit probably won't unstuff most of the files created
in recent years by Stuffit users unless they made sure the program created
an older style archive file.

			  Unsit, version 1.5

These are the souces for "unsit", a Unix program for breaking apart
StuffIt archive files created on a Macintosh into separate files on
the Unix system.  See the documentation at the beginning of "unsit.c"
or the man page "unsit.1" for more information.

To build the program, compile unsit.c and updcrc.c and link together.
If your system doesn't have the getopt() routine in its standard
library, also compile getopt.c and include it in the link.

This program opens a pipe to the "compress" program for doing the
uncompression of some of the files in the archive.  Most Unix sites
probably already have "compress".  If not, it can be found in the
comp.sources.unix archives.
