Technical Details:
A LZH is a file format that saves the result of a file or several files being compressed using the Lempel-Ziv and Haruyasu compression algorithm. This type of file has largely replaced its predecessor, the LHA file. LHA is still popular in Japan as a means of saving compressed archive files, specifically on Amiga computers. In its earlier years, LHA was supported by computer programs and operating systems in western culture, however most computers have switched to LZH because it performs additional compression using dynamic Huffman coding. LZH is still more popular in Japan than in Europe or the U.S. but users of these files will have no problem opening a LZH file as there are programs that open these files on all the popular western operating systems.
