nomarch 1.1 - extract `.arc' files

Post by Russell Mark » Tue, 28 Aug 2001 21:57:27



nomarch lists/extracts/tests `.arc' archives. (It also handles `.ark'
files, they're exactly the same.) This is a *very* outdated file
format which should never be used for anything new, but unfortunately,
you can still run into it every so often (especially if you mess about
with old CP/M stuff). So nomarch is handy as a way to deal with these
files.

(nomarch is primarily intended as a `replacement' for the non-Free
`arc' program.)

You can download it from ibiblio:

  ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/utils/compress/nomarch-1.1.tar.gz

There's also a web page here:

  http://rus.members.beeb.net/nomarch.html

1.1 adds an option necessary for nomarch to be usable from Emacs, and
has some fairly minor bugfixes.

Here's the changes relative to the previous version (from NEWS):

New `-U' option, to use uppercase archive member filenames - or more
precisely, to avoid lowercasing them. (In practice, almost all
archives use uppercase member filenames.)

File-writing errors didn't previously cause a non-zero exit value -
they do now.

Fixed memory leak when not all of an archive file member could be
read.

Added section on how to use nomarch with Emacs to man page.

Here's the LSM entry:
