EDI Install archive
EDI Install archive refers to a compressed file format associated with later versions of the EDI Install Pro installation software for Windows 3.x. EDI Install Pro was developed by Eschalon Development and Robert Salesas.
The documentation implies that the format was introduced in EDI Install Pro v2.8. It is the successor of EDI Install packed file.
Registered users of the software received an ARCHIVE.EXE utility to create such files, and a redistributable EXTRACT.EXE utility to decompress them individually.
The default file extension is .$00. In case of a name conflict, .$01, .$02, etc., will be used.
The format also supports file splitting. Fragmented files use extensions .@00, .@01, etc.
Files start with ASCII "
- wramp12.zip → EXTRACT.EXE (DOS utility)
