Well in the 4.2 development I wanted something to Unzip and tar.bz2 file, The default pupzip has problems with this format, it can take over 1hr for a large file so I asked around and forum member Aitch recommend me to try a few other programs and on his list was xarchiver, Oh My God is this ever good for file formats, Plus I altered this version to use puppys mime's files so it just a matter of point and click Smile
There are tons of new file formats that now can be opened and extracted
rpm bzip tar jar xpi and many more

Plus I took Sir Duncan's 2 pet packages for rar and 7zip and made them work with xarchiver they are both addons that you can download below.

enjoy Smile

Added updated unRar and also Rar archiving now you can make Rar packages, but if you just want to UnRar or open a Rar package, just use the smaller unRar pet.

Excellent, I can now open multipart rar archives that have part numbers only (foo.part1, foo.part2 etc) which for some reason neither archiver would open.

Thanks.

Your welcome, for the size of it you can't get anything quicker or smaller. I really like how quick it opens large tar.bz2 files, where xarchive would take an hour like Firefox sources, this xarchiver takes like 2 mins. Smile

ttuuxxx,

This is almost like the feeling one gets when one strikes
a goldmine!!

Many, many thanks for this!!

My main pup now is 412RMediaPup and I'm hoping XArchiver
will install as an adjunct to XArchive which is already present.

Opinions and/or advice will be gratefully accepted...

I usually just use xarchiver for everything, this other package I made for 4.2 replaces xarchive/pupzip with xarchiver http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/xarchiver-0.5.2-PupZip-v5.pet
and if you need even more than this, then theres peazip, which is also really good, but a lot larger.
it can be found in the software thread.

ttuuxxx,

Thanks for this too! I'll try this first as a matter of fact.

I mainly need the ability to deal with .rar files in addition
to all the other wrappers XArchive did.

Very good! Once again ttuuxxx to the rescue!

yes I know the feeling Smile I needed to open rar files in the past and I had to use peazip, but its always been so large I was really happy I found this alternative Smile Its a shame peazip is so big now, I also like pzip a lot. It can extract more format but its 5852 KB pet, thats lik 10X the size http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=16358
also still haven't found anything small to extract txz files yet.

Note that the debian etch package of 4.0 works out the box on puppy 2.xx for anyone who wants it.

It seems the speed difference is that xarchive uses scripts so therefore awk and such to view/extract archives but that gives versatality eg opening debs and rpms and pets and pups (lots of animals in there)

pupzip is just a wrapper...perhaps it could be modifed to select xarchive or xarchiver as fitting...oh I've just given myself a good idea Very Happy

Hi mike that above package replaces xarchive with xarchiver using pupzip, I already did that for 4.2 Smile

I was suggesting pupzip open xarchiver for such as tar.gx, gzip2 etc but open xarchive for deb, rpm, pet , pup since xarchiver cannot handle these...or is that what you meant?
