tzls and tzx

tzls and tzx are commandline utilities for quickly unpacking or listing the contents of various types of common Unix archive files, which may be compressed in any of several ways. The supported compression types are bzip2, gzip, and compress. The supported archive types are tar, cpio, zip, rar, and arj. The tools are implemented as shell scripts, so no compilation is required.

    Release Notes: Detection of ZIP archive content was improved. The embedded unzip options were fixed.

      Release Notes: The ARJ and RAR formats are now supported if the required binaries exist on the target system. The required archive and compression binaries are now checked for. A filename extension check has been re-added due to older file(1) commands reporting "data" for certain archive types. file(1) on some systems cannot read from stdin; this is now handled. bunzip2(1) on some systems requires a filename after -c, so -c is no longer used in the script.
