Archive is a fully drag-and-drop multi-format archiver. Drag a directory onto it to create an archive; drag an archive onto it to extract to a directory. It can also compress and decompress streams (for example, you could drag a .gz file onto Archive and from Archive into your text editor). Archive can create .tgz, .tar.bz2, .zip, .jar and .tar archives and can extract all the above as well as .rar, .rpm, .cpio and .deb formats. It can compress and decompress files to and from .gz, .uue and .bz2 formats.
