RNOArchive is a graphical archive manager, that can extract, modify, and
create archives. Extraction is handled by the XAD system and the program has
built-in support for writing ZIP archives. Writing to other formats relies on
separate Shell commands, and their availability and compatibility in the used
- Reads and extracts all archiving formats supported by the XAD system
- Write and modify support for ZIP and LhA archives
- Batch extraction for multiple archives
- Automatic sub-directory creation for batch extracted archives
- Archive browsing and file viewing
- Filetype editor for configuring file viewers
- Intelligent drag & drop support
- Recursive adding of files/directories
- Create new directories inside archives
- Delete files and directories
- Handles UTF-8 filenames in archives
- Extensive file selection options
- At least AmigaOS 3.0, 68020, and 8 MB RAM
- MUI 3.8 or later (http://aminet.net/package/util/libs/mui38usr)
- codesets.library (http://aminet.net/search?query=codesets)
- guigfx.library (http://aminet.net/package/dev/misc/guigfxlib)
- render.library (http://aminet.net/search?query=renderlib), v31 is probably
the best for <040 CPUs
- XAD libraries
- LhA 1.38 or newer for the LhA write support
Just copy the program anywhere you want.
- Dragging & dropping an archive file onto the Single Archive tab opens it as
a new archive.
- Dragging & dropping several files onto the Single Archive tab writes the
files immediately into the archive. It doesn't matter if files are archive
files. Directories can be added in this way too.
- Single or multiple files can be dropped onto the Batch Extract tab, as only
readable archive files are added to the list.
- If nothing is selected in the Single or Batch lists and the Extract button
is clicked, all files will be extracted.
- Double-clicked files are viewed according to program's filetype settings in
the Single Archive tab. Double-clicking in the Batch Extract tab extracts
- The "Create new dir(s)" option in the Batch Extract tab extracts the
archives into new sub-directories. For example, contents of "test.lha" would
be extracted into a new "test.lha_ext/" directory.
Program settings can be found in the program's pull-down menu and they will be
saved to the ENVARC:Hollywood/com.wmhost.jpv.rnoarchive file.
