I know nothing about LHA...

...and I need your help.

Remember the web based magazine Amiga Information Online? I wrote three reviews for them back in 2000, and now I wish to view the mags, because I'm putting together a portfolio of my work.

I downloaded the three issues which I wrote in (they are LHA files), and I successfully unzipped them with WinRar.

Now, can I view the magazine on my PC using some special program? When unpacked, the contents of the LHA file are text files, readme files, files with no extensions, IFF, DIZ and INFO.

I would really like to see my articles on my PC in their magified glory. Can anyone help me out?

Thanks.

I tried out some AIO issues from Aminet and they all appear to be Amiga programs, nothing you could use on the PC. You need to run an Amiga Emulator with a fully installed AmigaOS to view them on the PC.

Bye,
Thomas

Okay.., it seems they have just LHA'd up the contents of a Disk to just files in an archive..

No hassles, I have the Issue 39 loaded up now......, just taking a look in between work.

[edit] issue 39, not 38

You could have used the full version of WinRAR to un-pack those LHA's

I have been using winrar for ages now and its never failed to unpack lha archived files

No you are right, it does not fail to unpack, but given that extracting Amiga file attributes get corrupted/destroyed in windows, sometimes this is not possible and you have to do it WITHIN an Amiga enviroment.. aka Winuae.
