One other small note today: A while back I mentioned atool, as a universal unpacker — a kind of wrapper for four or five or more different decompression programs. In reply someone mentioned unp, and then a while later I found dtrx.
I feel obligated to mention the other two now, since I made note of the first. The sad part is, not a one of them — not even atool — has much to show. So no screenshots today.
And they all work equally well, although dtrx by default seems quieter than the other two. I gave each one a quick turn at the same compressed file, and I found no problems.
I should expect as much though, since not a one of them probably actually does anything aside from invoke the appropriate decompressor. It’s those underlying applications that would be at fault, if there was a problem.
Which means the question of which one to use becomes academic: Do you want to type out u-n-p, d-t-r-x or a-t-o-o-l? three letters, four letters or five?
Oh, but then command completion messes everything up. …
