primary The libarchive library features: * Support for a variety of archive and compression formats. * Robust automatic format detection, including archive/compression combinations such as tar.gz. * Zero-copy internal architecture for high performance. * Streaming architecture eliminates all limits on size of archive, limits on entry sizes depend on particular formats. * Carefully factored code to minimize bloat when programs are statically linked. * Growing test suite to verify correctness of new ports. * Works on most POSIX-like systems (including FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris, etc.)
tools The bsdtar and bsdcpio command-line utilities are feature- and performance-competitive with other tar and cpio implementations: * Reads a variety of formats, including tar, pax, cpio, zip, xar, lha, ar, cab, mtree, rar, and ISO images. * Writes tar, pax, cpio, zip, xar, ar, ISO, mtree, and shar archives. * Automatically handles archives compressed with gzip, bzip2, lzip, xz, lzma, or compress. * Unique format conversion feature.
