File Roller is an archive manager for the GNOME environment. As an archive manager, it can create and modify archives, view the content of an archive, view a file contained in the archive, and extract files from the archive. File Roller is only a frontend (a graphical interface) to archiving programs like tar and zip. Note that the stable branch is for Gnome 1.4 and the beta branch is for Gnome 2.0. FileRoller supports the following formats: tar archives uncompressed (.tar) or compressed with gzip (.tar.gz , .tgz), bzip ( , .tbz), bzip2 (.tar.bz2 , .tbz2), compress (.tar.Z , .taz), lzop (.tar.lzo , .tzo); Zip archives (.zip); Jar archives (.jar , .ear , .war); Lha archives (.lzh); Rar archives (.rar); Single files compressed with gzip, bzip, bzip2, compress, and lzop.
