patool iconpatool 1.4

A simple manager for file archives of various types
patool includes various archive types that can be created, extracted, tested and listed. The advantage of patool is its simplicity in handling archive files without having to remember a myriad of programs and options.

The archive format is determined by the file(1) program and as a fallback by the archive file extension.

patool supports 7z (.7z), ZIP (.zip, .jar), GZIP (.gz), compress (.Z), BZIP2 (.bz2), TAR (.tar), ARJ (.arj), CAB (.cab), CPIO (.cpio), RPM (.rpm), DEB (.deb), LZIP (.lz), LZOP (.lzo), LZMA (.lzma), RAR (.rar) and XZ (.xz) formats. It relies on helper applications to handle those archive formats (for example bzip2 for BZIP2 archives).
