    How to detected what packing format

    Hiya all.
    Newbie question. Are there any tools to detect which format/program was used to pack a MSDOS .EXE .COM file? I've been pocking around some files with IDA but packed files don't really disassemble well.

    Any other hints or tool recommendations most welcome as I'm pretty new to this.

    Thanks,
    Rob
