For The Unarchiver 2.0 Alpha 2/1.6.1Publisher's description


The Unarchiver is a System Utilities software developed by CircleSoft. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for The Unarchiver:

Edit By BS Editor: The Unarchiver is a much more capable replacement for "", the built-in archive unpacker program in Mac OS X. The Unarchiver is designed to handle many more formats than BOMArchiveHelper, and to better fit in with the design of the Finder. It can also handle FileNames in foreign character sets, created with non-English versions of other operating systems. I personally find it useful for opening Japanese archives, but it should handle many other languages just as well.

It is very simple to use and install - simply Copy it into your Applications folder or whereever you prefer, and then set archive filetypes to open using it. This can either be done the usual way, or by double-clicking the icon to show The Unarchiver's preferences.

Supported file formats include Zip, Tar-GZip, Tar-Bzip2, Rar, 7-Zip, LhA, StuffIt and many other more or less obscure formats. Support for so many formats is achieved by using the libxad unarchiving library.

Supports more formats than I can remember. Zip, Tar, Gzip, Bzip2, 7-Zip, Rar, LhA, StuffIt, several old Amiga file and disk archives, CAB, LZX, stuff I don't even know what it is.
Copies the Finder file-copying/moving/deleting interface for its interface.
Uses the character set autodetection code from Mozilla to auto-Detect the encoding of the filenames in the archives.
Supports split archives for certain formats, like RAR.
Built around libxad ( This is an old Amiga library for handling unpacking of archives. It supports a whole lot of formats, and I added a couple more, and bugfixed old code. I also wrote a higher-level Objective-C wrapper around it, which might be useful for other projects too (including Xee).
