Lists are a big deal. It really can't be overemphasized what a big deal they are. Lists are not only used for iterating through data, but they are also a popular data storage and categorization method used for handling data as a program is running. For anyone who's programmed in another language, lists are often known as arrays.

Although one of the primary reasons behind creating archives is the ease of handling and transfer, sometimes the compressed file itself is so large that it becomes a nightmare to transfer it over network, especially when the network speed is slow. So, what should be done in cases like these? Is there a solution to this problem? Well, yes - one solution is to split the compressed file into smaller bits, that can easily be transferred over network. At destination, you can join them back to get the original archive.
