dtrx is a tool for Unix-like systems that takes all the hassle out of extracting archives.
dtrx is a tool for Unix-like systems that takes all the hassle out of extracting archives. Here's an example of how you use it:
$ dtrx linux-2.6.10.tar.bz2
That's basically the same thing as:
$ tar -jxf linux-2.6.10.tar.bz2
You can just put scripts/dtrx wherever is convenient for you, but if you want to install the program system-wide, you can also run:
# python setup.py install
Here are some key features of "dtrx":
В· Handles many archive types: You only need to remember one simple command to extract tar, zip, cpio, deb, rpm, gz, and bz2 files. If they have any extra compression, like tar.bz2, dtrx will take care of that for you, too.
В· Keeps everything organized: dtrx will make sure that archives are extracted into their own dedicated directories.
В· Sane permissions: dtrx makes sure you can read and write all the files you just extracted, while leaving the rest of the permissions intact.
В· Recursive extraction: dtrx can find archives inside the archive and extract those too.
What's New in This Release:В· This version supports LZH archives, using the lha tool.
В· It includes a couple of minor bugfixes.
System Requirements:В· Python
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
