PUT is a shareware archiver/compressor for DOS, released in 1990, that produces files with the suffix ".put" (".PUT", using proper DOS naming conventions). The decompressor is called "GET". PUT was made by a company called "MicroFox", which seems to have consisted of a single person, Jim Haas.[1]

Identification

PUT files appear to start with 2 variable bytes, and then the ASCII text "-lZ5-". (The use of "lZ" suggests that PUT's compression may be based on LZ77 or LZ78; however, there is nothing to confirm this.)
