well waiting what to do for the simple video editing program, I contacted the very kind jvp to see if you could make a tool (since hollywood has xad in its plugins) to compress and decompress archives, without running into the use of development tools aros and unarc, (the hollywood xad plugin should be more updated), the only flaw that this decompresses and that's it, for the copression work we will use an external command I think "LHA", so from next month we will start the work of this tool

Great! I hope it will be faster than ZuneArc.

this tool was created to improve the current tools, we will no longer need development tools (zunearc uses them) in our distributions since we work in a linux environment for most of the cases and therefore space will be freed up in the installation iso, moreover unarc will also be obsolete, therefore a unique and free tool for those who want to use it  :)

status report of jpv rno

- Customly selected files can be unarchived
- Files can be selected by user defined patterns
- Batch extracting multiple archives in one go works
- Handling of existing files (overwrite and write protected files... replace/skip/abort/single files/all files)
- All kinds of checks when opening and extracting archives, and if user messes up with paths etc
- GUI tuning (info bar, enabling/disabling buttons depending the state of program, etc)
- Some workarounds for small issues with the xad plugin (directory creation and dates issues)

hello, great progress!!!


What about nested archives? Ex: a tar file included in a gz archive, or two zip files included in a bigger zip one?

paolo se dovesse servire puoi scompattare archivi GZ, TAR, BZ2, 7zip, Z, ma anche LZX con ZuneArc, per fare questo basta modificare il config, anche con Dopus4 puoi scompattare questo cenere di archivi con un click !

paolo if you need you can unzip GZ, TAR, BZ2, 7zip , Z, but also LZX archives with ZuneArc, to do this just change the config, also with Dopus4 you can unzip these ash archives with a click !

this week:

- Added Settings window and stuff needed there
- Created user configurable filename extension based file viewing
- Improved drag&drop, can add files and dirs into archives by d&d
- LhA support for archive creation/modifying, can even add new files into subdirs, which LhA doesn't support natively
- Deleting files from archives
- Implemented overwriting of existing files inside archives for both zip and lha
- Bug fixing and tweaking
- Added MakeDir option

 :D

first beta release for testing

changes

- Sorting options for both single and batch lists
- Drag&drop single or multiple archives into appicon
- ARexx support
- Re-design of CLI arguments
- Code cleaning
- Bug hunting and tweaking
- Archiver compatibility checks
- Zune bug work-around (AppMessage notifications seem to leak on all objects)
- HW plugin bug hunting

Known bugs:

- Memory hungry when extracting
- LhA archiving doesn't work on AROS currently (is there a newer LhA command somewhere?)


Speed may or may not get improvements... XAD is slow, but there might be something to do
differently... now I'm more focused on functionality and features.
