TAR GUI is a graphical user interface for GNU tar. It allows the user to save and load configurations.
TarDiff compares the contents of two tarballs and reports on any differences found between them. Its use is mainly for release managers who can use it as a QA tool to make sure no files have accidently been left over or were added by mistake. TarDiff supports compressed tarballs, diff statistics and suppression of GNU autotool changes.
Tardy is a tar post-processor. It may be used to manipulate the file headers in tar archive files in various ways.
tarix is a simple tar indexer that runs as a compression filter for tar. It generates indexes that allow fast access to any file within a tar archive that can be used normally and from even basic recovery disks.
Tarlisted takes lines of text as an input and creates tar archive based on that information. Each line contains permission, user, group, and a path name that are to be written in the header part of the tar entry. In addition, at the end of line the syntax varies depending the file type archived. For example, in the case of regular files, the filename where file content is read is added. Tarlisted creates POSIX.1-1998 tar file format only, and can archive all seven of the file types it supports.
tkArchive is a modular, generalized interface to the standard unix file archiving utilities.
unarc unpacks an archive and creates a top-level directory if it's needed. Unarc works with lots of archives, not just tarballs - .tar.bz2, .zip and even .rpm are supported. It's a simple and tidy way to unpack most archives.
Unzix is a small command-line program for extracting files from the new WinZix archive format.
URARFileLib allows you to read files from RAR archives created with RAR (ANSI C source, multi-OS support such as Linux, Solaris, Win32, OS2, ...).
vtgrab is a utility for monitoring the screen of another machine. It only works for text consoles: for X, the idea is to use VNC instead.
wcp archives and restores files on a local or ssh- reachable disk. Each backup archives contains all files, even unmodified files, which are "mirrored" from the previous archive by using hardlinks.
XArchive is a generic front-end that uses external wrappers around command line archiving tools. The program consults a wrapper directory at start up to see what types of files it supports, making adding support for new archive formats a matter of writing a wrapper for its command line tool and dropping it in the wrappers directory.
