7-Zip is a free and open-source file archiver, a utility used to place groups of files within compressed containers known as “archives”. This tool is developed by Igor Pavlov and it was first released in 1999. This tool uses its own 7z archive format, but can read and write several other archive formats. Thí tool can be used from a command-line interface as the command p7zip, or through a graphical user interface that also features shell integration. Most of the 7-Zip source code is under the GNU LGPL license; the unRAR code, although, is under the GNU LGPL with an “unRAR restriction”, which states that developers are not permitted to use the code to reverse-engineer the RAR compression algorithm.
