    Zip / Rar software for Mac OSX!?

    I can't find ANY decent .zip or .rar software for OSX!?

    I want a piece of software which lets me right click files and zip them and give me choices - ideally to let me split up the size of the zip files to be a certain mb size.
    I've tried WinRAR 4.10, Simple RAR and 7xz and they're all complete dog s***.

    Is there actually software out there for OSX to do this. WinRAR has done this on PC for about a decade!?

    Unfortunately, that's pretty typical for macs. You simply don't find the "Free Software" support for Macs like you do for Windows or Linux PC's.

    If I look up programs for Macs, I always expect there might be a price tag attached.
