linux default iconatool Publisher's description

A script for managing file archives of various types.

atool is a script for managing file archives of various types (tar, tar+gzip, zip etc). The main command is probably aunpack, extracting files from an archive.

atool project overcomes the dreaded "multiple files in archive root" problem by first extracting to a unique subdirectory, and then moving back the files if possible. aunpack also prevents local files from being overwritten by mistake.

Other commands provided are apack (create archives), als (list files in archives), and acat (extract files to standard out).

atool identifies archives by their file extension. Sometimes this is not possible, for instance rar archives usually have varying numeric file extensions. In those cases when atool can't identify the format, file(1) is used instead. (atool can also be configured not to use file.)

atool is written in Perl by Oskar Liljeblad, and is free software (GNU General Public License).
