If you want free archiving systems, your best bet is good old
fashioned ZIP, which allows you to cheaply extract any file from the
archive. If you want better compression and don't mind having to
decompress everything at once, use tar compressed with gz or bz2. gz
is relatively cheap, bz2 gives excellent compression but needs massive
buffers to decompress.
Remember that the zip file format supports multiple compression method
in a member by member basis.
You can compress some members with the "old" method and others with bz2.
