'kArchiver' is a utility for working with compressed files. Users can create tar.gz, tar.bz2, .zip, and other files, as well as add, remove, or view files with a multiselection window. Its interface merges with konqueror, so users can view and extract all archives within the file manager. Right-clicking on an archive allows you to extract archives in background. The program also converts files between .tar.gz and .tar.bz2, provides an automatic splitter/unsplitter to fit a file onto a set of floppies, and includes wizards that help users compile and install software through kArchiver's interface. Please note that there are separate versions of kArchiver for KDE 1.x and 2.x, and they are *not* compatible.
