comment stuffit compression on linux?
@voretaq The question has been answered and now other people attempting to work with old stuffIt archives who discover question will save some time so I'm happy with the way things turned out (no need to reopen). I will say that as someone that is active in two other SE sites (stackoverflow and crypto.SE) I am a little surprised at how many downvotes I got, and the general assumption that I was wrong and it wasn't really a stuffIt file, but perhaps serverfault just has a different culture or gets asked dumb questions more often.

@ewwhite Wow, well done. I didn't now even consider that stuffIt for linux would be archived on the wayback.

@voretaq7 - The FAQ lists file recovery as a valid question and this question can be useful to other people recovering and transitioning old apple data to new linux systems. Given that this is a compression file recovery question I assumed it would be welcome here. If I had known it would get such a hostile response I would have asked it on a more friendly SE.

@Michael Hampton - Apple's documentation lists it as a stuffIt file.

I know it is a stuffit archive because I downloaded it from apple and it was listed as a stuffit archive. The file names are System_7.0.1.smi.bin, SSW_6.0.8-1.4MB_Disk1of2.sea.bin, SSW_6.0.8-1.4MB_Disk2of2.sea.bin. Unzip does not work. Downloaded from here download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/…
