    Notes on Archiving Files, Disks, and Cassettes

    * Archiving REL files...

    For dealing with REL files, use: ARC, Arkive, Dxx, LNX, ZIP!. LNX is said to have problems properly archiving REL files. See Commodore File Formats in the Library/Articles area for more specific information on file types created by these utilities.
