xarchiver Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies xarchiver- contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

What is it?

Xarchiver is the ultimate solution for handling archives on Linux and FreeBSD. It's a Desktop Environment independent archiver front end. All common archive formats are supported, deb and RPM packages are handled without their package managers being installed. Xarchiver only depends on the GTK+ libraries and utilizes various (un)compressor/(un)archiver command line programs at runtime. Installation of xdg-utils is optional but installing it will allow Xarchiver to support opening more file types directly from inside an archive.

How to use it:

Please read the documentation accessible from the Help menu.

How to compile:

./configure # (run './configure --help' for more details) make

How to install (as root):

make install
