Projects / Karchiver


kArchiver is a KDE utility made to ease working with compressed files. With kArchiver, you can create tar.gz, tar.bz2, .zip, and other files, and you can add, remove, or view one or more files with a multiselection window. Its interface merges with konqueror, allowing you to view and extract all of your archives within the file manager. Right-clicking on an archive allows you to extract archives in background. You can also convert files between .tar.gz and .tar.bz2. It also provides an automatic splitter/unsplitter to fit a file onto a set of floppies, and wizards that will help you step by step to compile and install software through kArchiver's interface. It can act as a command line tool, useful for creating and extracting archives without taking care of the compressor's name and its options.
