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.
