WinZIP® <>; is perfectly capable of
handling the following file types:

    Zip (.zip)
    Zipx (.zipx)
    RAR (.rar)
    7Z (.7z)
    BZ2 (.bz, .bz2, .tbz, .tbz2)
    LHA/LZH (.lha, .lzh)
    Cabinet (.cab)
    Disc Image (.img, .iso)
    TAR (.tar)
    GZIP (.gz, .taz, .tgz)
    Compress (.tz, .z)
    UUencode (.uu, .uue)
    XXencode (.xxe)
    MIME (.b64, .mim)
    BinHex (.bhx, .hqx)
    Most other compressed files

I was personally responsible for having the "7Z" format added several
years ago.

By the way Poly, FreeBSD does not handle all types of compressed files
natively any more than Windows does. There are also add-ons available
to handle some really obscure formats.
