The description of diz format expansion
The diz file is a standard text file, which serves for the description of files or programs within a zip-archive. As a rule, it is named “file_id.diz”, where file_id is a shortening of “file identification”, and diz means “Description in Zip File”.
Long ago diz-files were applied for distribution of files via BBS. The data, stored into file_id.diz represented helpful descriptions of each file, which was uploaded to the system, for the system administrators.
