What is arc file?

Compressed file archive created either as a Macintosh Hierarchical File System (HFS) archive or an MS-DOS archive using standard MS-DOS compression; contains a collection of compressed files, each being compressed potentially with a different compression technique. ARC files were commonly used in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They are rarely used now and have been replaced by newer, more efficient compression algorithms. While ARC files were used primarily for MS-DOS and older versions of Macintosh computers, several current programs can still open them, such as StuffIt and WinZip.
