I remember HA as the best archiver for text files.  It often used in FidoNET and
was the de facto standard for text and ASCII data compression. As is well known,
this  archiver  was  never  completed,  but  even  the  beta that went into free

distribution was enough  to  overshadow  RAR and GZIP.  Of  course HA completely
ineffective on other file types and cannot be used for everything. 

The archiver has a special love for directories with text files.

I think you will understand why I was upset when I didn't find HA under AROS and
decided to compile it. Yes, it's archaic.
