Do all Macs have expander capabilities?

Is there any reason why you couldn't just use a .dmg disk image?  They have
compression and you should be able to mount it somehow from your stack
(might require AppleScript, I'm not sure).  You can create one very easily
using the Disk Utility application.  Maybe I missed the original post, but
what is it exactly you're trying to accomplish?

Subject: Do all Macs have expander capabilities?

If I wanted to create a Revolution app for Mac OS X that downloads a .sitx 
file, could I write a routine that would pass that downloaded file to
Stuffit 
Expander for decompression?

I guess before I can go that route, I need to ask this - - - - do all Mac OS

X systems come with Stuffit Expander?

If not, can anyone tell me what unix calls come with Mac OS X that can be 
used to compress/decompress Mac OS X applications, while preserving the 
resource-forks?
