IDEA: InfiniCompress aka Matryoshka Archive

An archive inside an archive inside an archive...

Compress then recompress the resulting file. Add spice by alternating compression software. Let's see what happens.

Better have a tool for extracting.  ;D

Most compressions utilities are good enough that archiving an archive of an archive doesn't save much on hard drive space.

If you just want to see what happens, open up a few archive utilities and do it. Much easier than writing a program.
