From Just Solve the File Format Problem
PACKER is a compressed archive utility for DOS, developed by ImagiSOFT of Albuquerque, NM. It is a component of their installation software named The Finishing Touch.
PACKER's native file format is just called PACKED by the Finishing Touch documentation. Some third-party utilities (e.g. IDArc and LGFV) call it "PFT". It usually uses PKWARE DCL Implode compression.
PACKER does not provide a default filename extension, but .PAK is used by the Finishing Touch documentation and sample scripts.
Files begin with bytes (hex)
00 50 00 14. They seem to always end with
- The Finishing Touch v2.0 (1992), includes PACKER v2.0
- The Finishing Touch v2.6 (1993), includes PACKER v2.0
