With an increasing number of archive/compression file formats, is there a single free/open-source command line tool to rule them all? Perhaps something with a consistent / unified set of flags? (note my friendly implicit reference to tar)
I once run into a set of aliases meant to largely simplify the task of compressing/de-compressing files with bindings to
tar and other utils, but I can't find this anymore.
How can I configure something like
atool to not use
unzip to extract zip files (which apparently can't handle files larger than 4GB) and to use
$ aunpack large_file.zip error: Zip file too big (greater than 4294959102 bytes) Archive: large_file.zip warning [large_file.zip]: 1491344848 extra bytes at beginning or within zipfile (attempting to process anyway) error [large_file.zip]: start of central directory not found; zipfile corrupt. (please check that you have transferred or created the zipfile in the appropriate BINARY mode and that you have compiled UnZip properly) aunpack: unzip ...: non-zero return-code
