Hi,

I have come across a file which appears to contain data compressed by
some PKWARE software. I doesn't seem to match any ZIP header that I've
seen. I thought it might just be a compressed binary blob from
PKWARE's implode library but that doesn't seem to match either. Does
anyone recognize it or have any ideas what it might be?

Thanks in advance,

Luke Q
