We've made it easy to add the latest StuffIt compression and
decompression technology to your applications. Plus you can add all
of the other file formats commonly found on the Internet. It's all
found in one application programming interface (API) to make it even
more convenient for you.

With version 5.1.2 of the SDK you get the very latest StuffIt Engine
technology plus a whole lot more:
* Multi-Lingual. All strings are stored in Unicode, lending files
to better cross-platform capabilities.

restored, regardless of the source or target platform (Macintosh,
Windows or Unix).
