Just kidding! I would look into archivers/bunzip and archivers/p7zip. I recall reading that the 7z format produces better compression rates than RAR for already compressed audio files but I don't remember the source. The file formats you mentioned are already compressed and depending on the contents you probably won't get /much/ better than you have now. -- Eitan Adler "Security is increased by designing for the way humans actually behave." -Jakob Nielsen _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
