        As the name might suggest, it is a 'package' containing the
program and all it's associated files, likely to include installation
scripts and anything else needed. That then generally creates an
.app file, which is actually a directory wich includes the files but
is seen by the NeXT as being a single executable file.

        Drop to the CLI on a NeXT and you'll find tar there as well.
