Johan Kiviniemi’s series of tubes

Program of the fortnight: atool

2007-02-01

The aunpack utility from the atool package extracts an archive, automatically choosing an appropriate unpacker depending on the archive’s type.

If there are multiple files in the archive’s root directory, aunpack extracts them to a new directory. Very handy.
