Information about BZ files and how to open them

A BZ - Bzip Compressed File is a specific type of archival document created using the software BZip or Bunzip. These types of files are commonly found on UNIX-based systems and are similar in concept to a traditional .ZIP document found in the Windows operating system. The BZIP format is able to compress large files with more efficiency than the traditional UNIX GZIP format, though the files that are compressed are not done so with the same speed as the GZIP format.
