Libarchive - C library and command-line tools for reading and writing tar, cpio, zip, ISO, and other

  •        0

This distribution bundle includes the following components: libarchive: a library for reading and writing streaming archives, tar: the 'bsdtar' program is a full-featured 'tar' replacement built on libarchive, cpio: the 'bsdcpio' program is a different interface to essentially the same functionality. It automatically handles archives compressed with gzip, bzip2, lzip, xz, lzma, or compress.

FSArchiver - Filesystem Archiver for Linux

FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.


It supports files and folders multi-compression (UPX, ZIP, 7Z) and archives extraction (several formats). It includes an intelligent UPX compression mode, self-extracting archive creation, encryption/decryption, external compressors and much more.

There is also a library API, permitting advanced developers to manage such transactions from programming languages such as C, Perl or Python.
