patool – command line archive file manager

Various archive formats can be created, extracted, tested, listed, compared, searched and repacked by patool. The archive format is determined with file(1) and as a fallback by the archive file extension.

patool supports 7z (.7z), ACE (.ace), ADF (.adf), ALZIP (.alz), AR (.a), ARC (.arc), ARJ (.arj), BZIP2 (.bz2), CAB (.cab), compress (.Z), CPIO (.cpio), DEB (.deb), DMS (.dms), FLAC (.flac), GZIP (.gz), ISO (.iso), LZH (.lha, .lzh), LZIP (.lz), LZMA (.lzma), LZOP (.lzo), RAR (.rar), RPM (.rpm), RZIP (.rz), SHAR (.shar), SHN (.shn), TAR (.tar), XZ (.xz), ZIP (.zip, .jar) and ZOO (.zoo) formats.

It relies on helper applications to handle those archive formats (for example bzip2 for BZIP2 archives).

The archive formats TAR, ZIP, BZIP2 and GZIP are supported natively and do not require helper applications to be installed.
