LBR file extension - LBR compressed archive
What is lbr file? How to open lbr files?
File type specification:
The LBR file format was also an archive file format used on CP/M and MS-DOS operating systems during the early 1980s. .LBR files were created by the LU program; later programs like NULU arrived for .LBR creation, and many tools such as LT and QL were capable of extracting from .LBR archives. .LBR is an abbreviation of "Library", and, resembling the .tar file format, member files were only stored in the .LBR file, not compressed. As transfer of LBR files by modem was common, it was typical practice for archiving a collection of files to compress them using the SQ or CRUNCH programs then store them in an .LBR archive, or else (more rarely) store the files in the LBR archive, then use SQ or CRUNCH to compress the archive. A compressed LBR archive file was given the extension ".LQR" (if squeezed) or ".LZR" (if crunched); however, it was more common to compress the members of the archive than to compress the archive as a whole.
