HOW DO i EXTRACT "LZX" FILES???
« on: August 23, 2009, 03:27:45 AM »
Hello everybody, I have a simple question.  How do I extract "LZX" files.  I went to Aminet but was inundated with all the different programs.  Does anybody know what is the easiest program to use and where to get it?  Thanks.

If you are using OS3.9 then you should be able to extract lzx directly using the unarc tool.

Otherwise, download http://aminet.net/package/util/arc/lzx121r1, then, after installation you can use an amigados shell to extract files thusly:

lzx -x yourarchive.lzx destinationdirectory/
int p; // A

I extracted the program to my hard drive but I don't see the LZH files to drop in the c: directory.  Did I do this right or is there somthing I am missing?

There is no LZH file. That's a different archiver.

The LZX 1.21r1 archive on aminet includes several versions for different CPUs (It also includes an extract-only utility called unlzx):

1) LZX_68000EC-r
2) LZX_68020r
3) LZX_68040r

If you have a 68000 or 68010, copy (1) to your C directory and rename it LZX
if you have a 68020 or 68030, copy (2) to your C directory and rename it LZX
if you have a 68040 or 68060, copy (3) to your C directory and rename it LZX

Whichever one you use, be sure to copy the LZX.Keyfile to your L directory

After that you should be able to extract lzx files.
int p; // A
